RE: Replication with slurpd - problems using TLS

Thanks for the response.  I still don't understand the need to use ldaps
at all though, but I will try it and see if it works.  At this point though
I feel like I'm engaging in voodoo administration because I really have no
understanding of why I'd need ldaps for this.

Also I don't have a slurpd.conf file, have never heard of one - all I did
was to add lines to the slapd.conf file on the master, I didn't create a 
seperate slurpd.conf file.  Both my master and slave servers in the 
replication scenario I am working with do have TLSCACertificateFile
specified though, which is what I think you meant.

ldaps:// does tls over 389.  Also, do you specify TLSCACertificateFile in 
your slurpd.conf?
