Re: slapd.conf -- passwords in clear text

you do:
perl -e "print crypt('secret', join '', ('.', '/', 0..9, 'A'..'Z', 'a'..'z')
[rand 64, rand 64]);"
to get your crypt version of your password (change secret for the pwd). 

Then you write the pwd in slapd.conf like this:
instead of secret
        ^^ the output from the above perl command.
