If, as Kurt has pointed out, this is a certificate-related problem
(which in my own experience mostly similar problems are), the you won't
yet have enough knowledge to know what the slapd debugging output means.
The best choice for this is '-d 5', but all you'll see is that there is
no ldapbind, not why.

To see exactly what is going on, you can best compile, run and learn
Ethereal: This is a packet sniffer, with which you can see the exact
content of each packet exchanged, both with and without ecncryption.
Though again, you'd have to know what to expect of the contents of an IP

The best thing you can do is to make sure that your signed
certificate(s) is/are declared in both slapd.conf (man slapd.conf) and
ldap.conf (man ldap.conf) are readable by whichever user is running

See Peter A. Savitch's posting of 10th August last for a complete HOWTO
on this last point.

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
