Re: idletimeout causing failed logins

I recently changed my slapd.conf so that it had idletimeout 30 in it

three minutes there would be tons of login failures. Slapd never died,

these lapses I would fail also. Removing idletimeout 30 from
slapd.conf and restarting made this behavior go away.

This is very strange to me.


That sounds both odd and troubling. The idletimeout 30 is supposed to simply close connections that haven't been doing anything for 30+ seconds.
