Folks, I'm currently working on setting up replication between two LDAP servers. I understand with OpenLDAP 2.4 this requires the use of syncrepl. I have read that it supports push and pull replication (as well as the wizzy-cool N-way) but I was wondering if anyone could advise how this works at the transport layer. From reading through the docs, I infer that with pull the slave periodically makes a TCP connection to the master in order to check for changes and with push, the slave makes a persistent TCP connection to the master, over which updates are propogated from the master. Is this correct? I would like to know if there is a way to initiate the TCP connections from the master to the slave as this would make life a little easier for me? Cheers, Mike.
