I am trying configure openldap work with tls , but I have two question
about this, first when I use tls openldap use port 389 and ssl port 639
, is this correct ?  Second How I can test connection between client
and server, cryptography is working ? 

There is no ssl port! SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a proprietary,
licence based protocol, owned by Netscape? I don't know whether the
IPR of this protocol have been part of the Netscape/AOL deal. OpenLDAP,
and most other network based applications, have implemented Transport
Layer Security (TLS), RFC 2246. As a LPI certified professional you
should be aware of this.
OpenLDAP uses port 639, which has not been assigned by IANA to LDAP(S)
