Sorry, I couldn't resist.  But the only types of passwords I know are
those that work and those that don't.

Then use your rootdn password, the one that's in rootpw.

An "identity" for SIMPLE bind is a DN; an identity for a SASL bind is
whatever specified by the SASL mechanism in use.  That's why I don't want
to be more specific than you about the type of identity you're using,
since I'm not you.

Well, if "cn=Manager,dc=intranet,dc=techno,dc=com" is your rootdn, if
"secret" is your rootpw, and if you add a "-x" to select SIMPLE bind, that
should work.

of course.
