explaining LDAP and TLS


I am not sure to understand TLS completly:

- TLS is a secure layer or not? i.e.: when i connect on my LDAP using TLS : I connect on port 389, the server verify my certificates and then the link is established. But are the flow of datas crypted or not? dos all information in the connection flow in clear text?

Or does i use both TLS and SSL (so i connect only on port 636 ) ?

TLS work only on port 389 isn t it?
