Imap unable to authenticate

I am trying to authenticate imap users against a mysql database using authdaemond, but I get these errors:
Nov 12 04:03:35 mail1 imapd-ssl: Connection, ip=[::ffff:]
Nov 12 04:03:35 mail1 imapd-ssl: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Connection refused
Nov 12 04:03:35 mail1 imapd-ssl: [Hint: perhaps authdaemond is not running?]
Nov 12 04:03:35 mail1 imapd-ssl: LOGIN FAILED, method=PLAIN, ip=[::ffff:]
Nov 12 04:03:35 mail1 imapd-ssl: authentication error: Connection refused

Authdaemon is running and properly authenticates users with smtp, but not imap.

    Ended up creating a symlink to the proper authdaemon socket to fix it
