        you are using OpenLDAP 1.2 is the perimeter system

        no special access is necessary to bind
        addr=<regex> is the expected syntax
        order matters

So, make sure the first by clause of each access
directive is "by attr=62\.132\.127\.51 none".  This
will deny all access excepting bind (authentication).

I would also suggest use of TCP wrappers or host level
firewall software on the LDAP server host to restrict
access as well as appropriate rules on your internal/perimeter

Configuring 2.0 is slightly different as 1) "auth" access
must be granted to userPassword to allow bind and 2) addr
was replaced with peername.
