Connection timeout

OpenLDAP 2.3.35

I know about the time limit on the search, but is there a user-specified 
one on the connect?

I ask because when our primary LDAP server went down for maintenance, the 
various applications took around 2-3 minutes before trying the secondary 
server (accompanied by much wailing and gnashing of teeth).

I would've thought that the fail-over would have been practically 
instantaneous (which it is if the server in question is also the client's 
host); perhaps we have an errant packet filter in the way, but that's 
beyond the scope of this list.
