Just enable SSL on the windows machine and use -H ldaps://
with ldapsearch.

To enable SSL on win2k, you have to install the CA tools,
create a CA and request a certificate. I did this with
mmc and the computer certificates snapin. After this,
port 636 will be open on the windows server and ready for
connections :)

(You may need a reboot or two, don't forget this is windows).
