Confusion about Authenticaion and Transport layers


I'm just starting to play around with LDAP and I've got a few problems.

The first question is regarding transport.  How is LDAP transported? is it all
in the clear or is there a fairly simple way to make it to LDAP over SSL.  Or some
other method?

The second question is a lot of confusion regarding how to make anything but 
simple authentication work.  I can make queries to the LDAP server (OpenLDAP 2.0.7)
without any problems if I specify simple authentication (-x), but if I remove the -x
flag then I get:

ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: No such attribute

I've read the mailing list archives but I still can't figure out what I'm supposed to
do to remedy this authentication problem.  I complied OpenLDAP with the following configure 

./configure  --with-cyrus-sasl --with-threads --with-tls --enable-spasswd --enable-aci
