Re: Can't contact LDAP Server

Actually we are getting "can't contact ldap server" error while using ldapsearch command itself!!

Gone through the openldap docs in http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/appendix-common-errors.html#ldap_*:%20Can\'t%20contact%20LDAP%20serverand used telnet localhost 389 and got the out put as "Trying
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused"
 and we used the command netstat -an|grep 389 and didn get a output..
how to enable the port no 389?
we tried to open port through iptables..but not able to do that too..we are doing this in debian etch

You should read the OpenLDAP Admin Guide to get the basic concepts not
3rd-party docs which might be distribution-specific and/or wrong/outdated.


Or for 2.3.x:

This means the LDAP server was unreachable.

Hard to say without knowing anything about your setup at all...

Ciao, Michael.
