I didn't realize that Netscape and Microsoft clients had
implemented any SASL authentication methods yet.  I'm under
the impression they only support simple bind, but that they
did support this over both LDAP and LDAP over SSL.

Netscape "smart" (anon search + simple bind) authentication
over ldaps:// doesn't work for me [the 0x61 issue others have
reported]... but simple bind works fine.  See FAQ for details
on how to provide a bind DN to Netscape.

BTW, the test user "uid=test,dc=openldap,dc=org" w/
password "secret" is now available for testing purposes
at ldap://ldap.openldap.org/ & ldaps://ldap.openldap.org/

By enquiring on the developer's list.
