"Out of the box", i.e. following the rules set in the Openldap Admin
guide with 2 *.pem x509 certificates (*not* signed) 2.1.3, "allow
bind_v2" TLS/SSL works for me with Mozilla 1.0 and native openldap
clients (ldapsearch etc) and Exim 4.10 (smpt server). Doesn't work with
Netscape 4.7.9. GQ doesn't work, but if you do ldd on the binary you'll
see why (it refuses to follow the directives for the source of the ldd
libraries and chooses older versions, which I can't 'rpm -e', since so
many things are dependant on them). GQ doesn't work (for me) for SASL
either; reason is the same. Who cares?
