Re: Slapd issue

I am running slapd(openldap-2.3.32) on a linux host. I am also running openldap-2-32-3 on a linux client.
If I use the "allow_bind_v2" switch in the slapd.conf file, I can do anonymous simple binds from the client to the server over TCP with no problems. I can also do simple login/password authentication with no problems.

Anonymous Simple Binds are allowed regardless of the "allow_bind_v2" option. As its name implies, that option only controls whether to accept Binds that specify LDAPv2. That option defaults to off and generally should stay off. LDAPv3 has been around for 10 years already and LDAPv2 was officially retired 4 years ago; there's no good reason for anybody to still be using it now.

I now an trying to use v3 secure connections. When I attempt to authenticate, I get the following errors from the slapd logs (in bold):

TLS trace: SSL_accept:SSLv3 flush data
*tls_read: want=5 error=Resource temporarily unavailable*
*TLS trace: SSL_accept:error in SSLv3 read client certificate A*
*TLS trace: SSL_accept:error in SSLv3 read client certificate A*

This error was ignored by slapd, otherwise the log would have shown the connection being closed here. This behavior is normal, since you didn't require client certificate verification.

*connection_read(14): TLS accept failure error=-1 id=0, closing*
connection_closing: readying conn=0 sd=14 for close
connection_close: conn=0 sd=14

This shows that the client sent an "unknown CA" message to the server and that the client considered it a fatal error, and closed the connection.

It loks to me as is slapd is trying to read the client certificate even though my slapd.conf file entry "*TLSVerifyClient never*" is set. I am new to this all, so I do not know if I am interpreting this correctly or not.

That is not the important part of the trace.

Any help would be most appreciated.
