Re: Connection timeout

As of 2.3.28, libldap's connections use TCP keepalives. You should be able to configure your networking stack to get the desired behavior.

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.
