Re: About starting of slapd
The -h flag of slapd will take a list of ldap_urls, this feature
is VERY HANDY when user wants to open 2 (even more) listening ports for
ONE SINGLE slapd instance.
Assuming you have a transactional ldbm backend und want to let the
slapd instance binding 2 ports ( one standard ldap port 389 and another
ssl-encrypted port 636 ), so you can specify, for instance, that write
permission should be granted to the loopback interface of localhost on
port 389; on the other hand, the machine's ethernet network interface,
say your LAN interface to outside should only listen for ldap connections
on port 636 for ssl encrypted traffic.
> -h "ldap://localhost:389/ ldaps://188.8.131.52:636/"
Actually -h also takes ipc socketurls like this : > -h
"ldapi://host:port/ ... <list of ldap urls>", very flexible.
Hope that answers your question, please consult the OpenLDAP Admin
guide and man pages for details.

It seems that establishment of two or more ports is possible
to LDAP when
starting slapd using the -h option. For what case is this used concretely
Moreover, what merit is there by using this ?
Example) slapd -h "ldap://host1:389
If someone are known, please let me know.
