/etc/ldap.conf is present.  I've been using authconfig to set up the LDAP 
settings.  It appears to edit the /etc/ldap.conf.  Rather than "ssl on," it 
adds a command called "ssl start_tls."  I've tried changing it to "ssl on" 
with no results.

As to where I found the other settings, I see those commented in the 
/etc/ldap.conf file.  I saw a reference to that setting on a random 
discussion archive page during my research.

I would be happier if I was getting error messages saying there was an LDAP 
connection failure.  But all I'm getting is "illegal user" messages in 

BTW, if I have TLS activated, and user reference in /etc/passwd, it will allow 
me to login the user with the LDAP password.
