Oracle Internet Directory troubleshooting

I have recently installed Oracle 9iAS, release 2 and am trying to configure Portal. I can't get past the Single Sign On.

When I try to login to Portal, I get this message on the Single Sign-On web page: Error: There is an error in the setup of the directory used for authentication. Please contact the administrator to make sure the directory is setup appropriately. (WWC-41655)

I don't know where to start to troubleshoot the OID for this. I went through Oracle's Note 206191.1 "Troubleshooting Oracle Portal 9.0.x" and got as far as step 3 (Single Sign On Server). Enterprise Manager says SSO is up, but I could not log in using User Name: orcladmin and its password.

I checked my dads.conf. Here's how it reads:  [The values in brackets aren't the real ones]

Be sure to include your domain name in the url when you go to the sso url, also include the hostname* in the bypass proxy list on your Internet Explorer Options.
