start_tls versus ldaps
First of all, I apologize for my poor english writing skill. I hope you to
I'm almost new using TLS/SSL (and OpenLDAP too), so don't be rough ;)
Right, I'm trying to set up an OpenLDAP server and I'd like the connections to
be encrypted. Ok, it seems that TLS/SSL works pretty fine using start_tls or
ldaps://. So, my question is, what's better?
I've read somewhere that TLS is the "new way" and must be preferred. So, I
suppose I could close the 636 port. In the other hand, I don't know if I can
force the clients to use TLS over 389 this way.
>From your experience, what do you think about it? I almost have read the
"admin guide" and I've not seen clear advices on this issue.
Thank you in advance.
