View Full Version : [ubuntu] OpenLDAP with SSL

October 23rd, 2008, 05:15 AM

I tried to configure openldap server with ssl on Ubuntu 8.04. I created a server certificate (self-sign), configured slapd.conf as follow.

TLSCACertificateFile server.pem
TLSCertificateFile server.pem
TLSCertificateKeyFile server.pem

I restarted slapd then tried

openssl s_client -connect localhost:636 -showcerts

it told me that

connect: Connection refused

I also tried with Centos, it just works just fine.

Please help,

Basically this means your slapd server isn't running on the port you specified. Does it give any output when you try to start the service?
(You start it by running /etc/init.d/slapd start)

Personally my slapd won't start.
I get the following error message:

main: TLS init def ctx failed: -64
