Well, I guess the specific question I would have here is "what
certificates/keys/etc are even required for this?". When setting up the
LDAP server I was told by the people who supply it that I would need
only a trusted root certificate from the LDAP server to do
authentication, but I was also told by another person at that company
that I would need more than just that one certificate. What
specifically would LDAP need? I suspect my problem isn't really so much
one of a misconfigured server so much as not having all the necessary
certs and/or keys available, that sort of thing.
See the Admin Guide, it's all spelled out there.
