This is fine, if you mean that there is an LDAPS listener on port 636.
> SASL + SASL EXTERNAL on 389 or 636 ??
This works if you have a valid client certificate, issued by the same CA
that issued the server's certificate. It will only work on a plain LDAP port
if you use the StartTLS request first. It will work on port 636 if that port
has an LDAPS listener.
> SASL + SASL SIMPLE method ??
Generally SASL PLAIN is not supposed to be used with LDAP. Use LDAP simple
instead. SASL PLAIN is turned off by default in slapd.
> Same question about TLS !
Same answers as SSL.
