Re: [Fwd: RE: LDAPS: What am I doing wrong?]


The verify errror you are getting is because the server certificate has to be
signed by a root CA (which is a self signed certificate). Unless this
certificate chain is verified by the client you will get an error. The link
which was mentioned in Mr Howard's mail should help you generate a root CA and
use that to sign the server certificate.
Refer to the openldap administrator guide (this has been updated with TLS
configuration information).
You can also refer this link if you have any further questions regarding the
general  procedures for generating certificates:
