How to I verify SSL is working correctly

Title: How to I verify SSL is working correctly

I’m adding SSL to an existing openLDAP server.  My certificate is a 2048 bit from Comodo and I need to install both the certificate and and the intermediate chain, 5 certificates altogether.  I bundled the chain into a single file in the order Comodo lists and in slapd.conf I added:

TLSCACertificateFile /path/to/providerBundle.crt
TLSCertificateFile /path/to/mycert.pem
TLSCertificateKeyFile  /path/to/mykey.pem

Then I restarted openLDAP.  I have several different browsers to test the SSL connection, and mostly they all worked just fine.  However, lbe, a java based browser that I think was originally from Novel, asks me if I want to trust the CA root certificate, which is the first cert in the CA bundle.  

So, needless to say, I’m confused.  Can anyone help unconfuse me?
