If the LDAP server stands behind the firewall from the LDAP client's point of view and the firewall must not allow packets to 389/tcp you're lost. Note: Some firewalls might allow ICMP packets (for ping) but disallow TCP connects on certain ports. If there's no firewall between your LDAP server and the clients you have a configuration problem on the LDAP server. Ciao, Michael.
