ldap_bind and crypt


I'm starting with ldap and I have a lot of doubts these are some of
- If I have a ldap server with the user's passwords encrypted with crypt
and I try to authenticate myself from a client using:
ldap_simple_bind_s (ld, mydn, my passwd in cleartext)
Would I be authenticated or I'd need to encrypt my password before
binding? In this case, how would I know the salt the ldap server is
using to encrypt?
How can I configure my ldap server to manage the passwords encrypted
with crypt?

Many thanks in advance
have a nice day
