Re: Storing certs for remote servers ref'd by back-ldap

Tony et al,

ok i have the certs now working when I use the ldapsearch utility, with the 
TLS_CACERT configuration option in ldap.conf. However, when I try to use 
back-ldap in slapd to query the same server, I need to be able to tell slapd 
where the certificate is -- and it does not seem to (i) read ldap.conf, or 
(ii) accept the same configuration option in slapd.conf.

What have I missed?

Thanks for your reply Tony,

Stephen Brandon
