RTM	"man ldapsearch" should help

prompt for a password. You haven't supply a userDN to match. So the user 
is anonymous, which do not have a password. Just press <enter> for 

I asume this should be your baseDN. You must provide a "-b", ie
-b "dc=easydita,dc=com"

If you want to connect as an user with password, try:

-W -D "cn=admin,dc=easydita,dc=com"

You don't need to specify a '*' as attribute list, it is the default.
