Re: ldap cant connect

appreciate your response....actually...i found my problem right in the
slapd.conf file....my path was off ...
ie...i had /usr/local/openldap instead of /usr/local/etc/openldap...(too
many hours in front of the term...).now i seem to have things running
and working on new errors as i continue to learn.....

thanks for responding...it was good to see that someone is actually on
this list :)
