Yes, there is a plugin which allows one to enter the server information which I've done.
Since it's now working from the command line on the client server, I believe the problem is php related.

No, my problems were ldap related which is why I came here :).
I have two problems to resolve, one was/is being new to openldap so needing help in resolving some of those issues. My joomla specific questions I've posted in the joomla forums.

Actually, you could have simply said to look into 'client access' in the ldap.conf and that would have been a great lead. That's what someone else posted and it was the lead I needed to at least resolve that the client wasn't even being allowed to connect. Now I need to figure out what is related to the php portion as I believe that's where the next problem lies.

So, if anyone knows of a way to test a php ldap connection from a client to a server machine, I'd sure welcome some input.

Thanks for the reply.
