How do I set the connection timeout for idle connections? I found where
i could put 'timeout 60' in slapd.conf and so I tried that and restarted
but it doesn't seem to be taking effect with my custom client. Should
that be working?
Have you read the slapd.conf(5) man page?
specifically, the "idletimeout" directive.
ok, I tried that and although it wasn't exactly 60 seconds it seems to
have worked to a point. Now my client just hangs w/o any error being
generated. I get errors returned after only a few seconds when my app
tries to perform an operation with other directories so I know my app
will display errors to the user. Should openldap be alerting my client
to the error or just let the app forever attempt to reuse the connection
that timed out?
It sounds to me like your application is broken. A well written LDAP
application will notice that its connection has been closed, and rebind.
