Re: LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_xxx option in SSL/TLS connection

Guess what? Just picked up a pearl in the sea of internet: http://www.mailinglistarchive.com/postfix-users@postfix.org/msg57688.html

Basically, it seems to be a feature introduced since the beginning of openldap 2.4 version. We need to set LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_REQUIRE_CERT on an ldap handle (already initialized), and set LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_NEWCTX (with a value 0) thereafter:

        rc = ldap_set_option(ld, LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_REQUIRE_CERT, &require_cert);
        assert(rc == LDAP_OPT_SUCCESS);

        rc = ldap_set_option(ld, LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_NEWCTX, &am_server); // am_server is 1, only if the code is compiled for server
        assert(rc == LDAP_OPT_SUCCESS);

Now the option works as per connection, rather than as per process.
