Re: ldap+ssl+Active directory


I'm using Yast to configure ldap, in the ldap client, I pick the option: 
'ldap tls/ssl'. then /etc/ldap.conf has the next line:

# OpenLDAP SSL mechanism
# start_tls mechanism uses the normal LDAP port, LDAPS typically 636
ssl     start_tls
nss_base_passwd dc=monesa,dc=es
nss_base_shadow dc=monesa,dc=es
nss_base_group  dc=monesa,dc=es

I think the configuration is OK, but I don't know how suse import the 
w2k'certificate, or if I need to create a certificate to suse. I've 
installed Microsoft Certification Authority, to enable ldap over ssl in 
w2k. In suse I only set this option (ssl start tls), then I don't know if I 
need to do nothing else.
