RE: cont contact server since 3 days+please help

Have you on the server side verified that LDAP is up and listening on the proper port?


ps –eaf | grep slapd


netstat -na | grep 389

tcp        0      0       *                   LISTEN


If the above come back and indicate it is up and listening see if you can telnet to the <ip> 389 and get something back.


Also you could check to see if you are getting errors on server startup by checking the slapd.log on the server side and see if it is reporting any errors.


If you are using the command line search are you specifying the remote server using the –h option?


Most of the errors seem to indicate there is nothing listening on the server to handle the search request.
