But where do you put in your password? At the moment I'm getting
"Connection Refused" (from slapd's logs, not from Evo) - I've chosen
"Bind using distinguished name" but Evo does not ask me for a password,
and it just fails to connect (telling me the URI may be wrong!). 

Thanks to Russ and Quanah for correcting me re Debian slapd and openssl.
