Well, you should isolate the problem so that you can take it up
to the right mailing list.  I suggest you make sure ldapsearch(1)
is working properly before trying non-OpenLDAP clients such
as NSS/LDAP and PAM/LDAP... and before ldapsearch(1), you might
try the OpenSSL clients (to eliminate OpenSSL issues).
