Hi,
we are planning to enable secure LDAP for my active directory infrastructure. We have all of our DCs running on 2003 servers in 32 bit platform.
Somebody telling me that 2003 is already running on secure LDAP and i m also able to connect thru LDP.exe to my domain on port 636. does it proves that secure LDAP is there ?

Please suggest on this..

Yes if you connect over 636 you are using ldap over ssl

if you couldn't connect via port 636 you would get an error "can't connect or open" > not sure of the exact errror off the top of my head.

Thanks

I should have googled first :)

http://www.expta.com/2009/11/how-to-test-ldap-over-ssl-connections.html  >> the exact error if it wasn't working is  "Cannot open connection,"

...and if you had isssues the AD team has a great blog entry   http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2008/03/13/troubleshooting-ldap-over-ssl.aspx

Thanks

you can use either (it is not one or the other)

port 389 is the default LDAP port.

Not sure if that is possible, (meaning every app using LDAP/SSL).  I'll let you know if I find something though.
