Check your firewall again on both the ldap server and on a client
machine.  It's worth a double check.  Also check the acl in slapd.conf,
are you letting your domain in to browse?

When you built the RH machine, and you told the installer to install
@Everything, you installed the openldap rpm, that installs
/etc/openldap/ldap.conf.  If you then installed openldap yourself, from
source for instance, it installed ldap.conf in /etc/.  You are probably
using /etc/ldap.conf.  Try renaming /etc/openldap/ldap.conf by appending
".orig" to the filename.  If you can still connect to the ldap server,
you are using /etc/ldap.conf.
