Re: SSF and binds

Is there any way in OpenLDAP 2.2.x to say the following:

Yes that is posible, in principle. But I would use ldapi instead of localhost. The socket has a build-in ssf of 71.

Is it possible to *assign* connections from/to a specific peer an SSF?

The systems or network administrator knows what connections are secure
and what ones aren't.  If I route traffic from my LDAP primary to my
secondary over a dedicated link, I may want to assign that link an SSF
of, say, 40, or 71 - or whatever.

It should be up to me or my network administrator.

I raised this issue on the ldap bugs list, but phrased some things in
a way that made the request look like I simply didn't understand what
I was asking for, and Kurt rightly pushed me over to this list.

So I'd like to ask here:  Am I making sense?
