Re: ldaps access with RedHat 7.3 installation

Was your openldap compiled with the '--with-tls' option?  That's a

Why are you giving a number arg to 'TLSVerifyClient'?  It takes a string.
I have seen it given a number arg twice and both were today.  Did something
change recently?  The directive is not needed for TLS operation (only
client authentication) , so you can remove it for now.

Some users have been helped with this doc:
http://www.openldap.org/pub/ksoper/OpenLDAP_TLS_howto.html.  Give it a try.
I have only configured OpenLDAP 2.1.x for TLS.  If 2.0.x is problematic in
that area, I hope someone will chime in and encourage you to upgrade to it.

With the standard installation of OpenLDAP 2.0.27, I have the server up
and running fine. I have setup TLS support in the slapd.conf file and
the service restarts without problem:

TLSCertificateFile /etc/openldap/server.cert
TLSCertificateKeyFile /etc/openldap/server.key
TLSCACertificateFile /etc/openldap/demoCA/cacert.pem
TLSVerifyClient 0

The start up script I'm using is the standard one with the RH7.3 distro
which uses the -h option with 'ldap:/// ldaps:///' if it greps the TLS.
However, I cannot access the directory securely using ldaps, only ldap
works from the localhost or another machine on the network. I've seen
two examples of setting this up and I can't seem to find where I'm going
wrong. There are no ACL's setup, yet.

Can someone point me to logs to check or what to look for in solving the
