Hi everyone,

I have done some research for what I need to do, but have some problems still.

1) I want to enable TLS in my sonicwall when setting up LDAP authentication from the Sonicwall NSA 240 device over to my DC which is Windows 2003.

I have already succesfully binded LDAP over port 389 (No SSL).

I have already followed these steps for setting up the CA and the sonicwall part:
https://www.fuzeqna.com/sonicwallkb/consumer/kbdetail.asp?kbid=7813

Its all peachy, but it still does not connect when trying to do it over the SSL port 636,

Does anyone have any insight as to what I am missing or doing wrong?

I had no CA in the windows 2003 server, so its newly setup per the previous link.
LDAP binds and connects ok from anywhere in network so firewall is not an issue.

Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks!!

Ok, nevermind! I figured it out...

It seems I had an invalid certificate, if you uncheck the "Require valid certificate" on the users settings in Sonicwall, it will still connect via SSL, just will not validate the identity of the originating device (still need to fix) but its just a matter of reconfiguring the CA server.

Post me a message if anyone has similar problems.

Thanks!
