RE: LDAPSearch/Add: Can't Contact Server

Looks like the problem was with Red Hat installation.  The DNS did not have
a proper mapping for the hostname -> IP address, and the ldap utilies must
have been doing a gethost on the name.

Thanks for the help!

It could be SLAPD on non-standard port and no port number given with
LDAPxxx. It could be misspelled hostname.

It could be ACL not allowing access.

LDAPxxx have DEBUG flags which might or might not help.
