Having problems getting my TLS setup working.
Ubuntu 11.10 (3.0.0-16 server)
A few things:
a) Ubuntu uses GnuTLS instead of the safe, secure, and sane OpenSSL. This
leads to all sorts of issues when using SSL/TLS on Ubuntu. I would advise
rebuilding OpenLDAP linked to OpenSSL.
b) You're using a significantly old version of OpenLDAP (unrelated, but
worth being aware of). I would advise building your own OpenLDAP build
against a current release.
c) You fail to state the information particularly necessary, regardless of
the above, which is to note what your TLS settings in slapd are.
I would note that if you are using a self-signed certificate, it still
needs a self-created CA that is known by the LDAP server, via the TLSCA
settings in the configuration.
