Look in /etc/sysconfig/ipchains. You should see a line similar to:
-A input -s 0/0 -d 0/0 389 -p tcp -y -j REJECT
Note the '389' port. Remove that line and you should be OK. If you
don't have a line like that, you may have a more restrictive firewall
which rejects everything not specifically allowed. In that case, add a
line similar to the following:
-A input -s 0/0 -d 0/0 389 -p tcp -y -j ACCEPT
That one specifically allows packets to the ldap port. Restart ipchains
and you should be good to go.
I would also suggest that you read up on the ipchains(8) command. It's
better if you understand what is going on rather than taking my word for
