I have this in my config:

# SSF value for ldapi://
localSSF 256

What I don't understand here is: Doesn't "256" _require_ encryption for
ldapi:// then?

There is a reason for everything I write, especially this sentence:

  >> See slapd.conf(5) for details.

Learn to read the fine docs.

What really annoys me in this list are answers like "I know, you dont't. Try
to find out yourself!".

Is it really too demanding to look up the text yourself when I point out a particular configuration directive *and* point to the relevant man page?

My impression was that you did not read the text before asking back.

Here's what the manual page says:
        localSSF <SSF>
               Specifies  the  Security Strength Factor (SSF) to be given
               LDAP sessions, such as those to the ldapi://  listener.   For
               description  of  SSF  values,  see sasl-secprops's minssf
               description.  The default is 71.
So where is the answer what 255 means? And what is the meaning of 71? (I guess
71 bit encryption; so I guess 255 means 255-bit encryption, but you say I'm

Yes, the default is 71 which is lower than what you specified as minssf.

Ciao, Michael.
