Enabling port 636 for LDAP SSL
Posted on 2008-11-19
I'm trying to configure LDAP authentication with SSL. I've installed a certification authority (on our domain controller and yes I'm aware of the associated security risks) and issued certs and installed certs on the application server. I can get LDAP to work on port 389 but not on port 636 which I need for SSL. When I test the connection with the LDP tool I get this.
ld = ldap_sslinit("domainController", 636, 1);
Error <0x0> = ldap_set_option(hLdap, LDAP_OPT_PROTOCOL_VERSION, LDAP_VERSION3);
Error <0x51> = ldap_connect(hLdap, NULL);
Server error: <empty>
Error <0x51>: Fail to connect to domainController.
I think port 636 is not enabled. Does anyone now how to enable this port? I've patched the server for MS08-060 which I think may have disabled port 636.
