I want to authenticate from my linux server using secure ldap

I want to test authentication for Linux clients (users) to a windows 2008 Server , Domain controller.
How can i test the authentication from the linux server ? I need to have secure LDAP.
How can i set it up and what do i need to do ? I guess i will have to somehow integrate the Linux server with the AD environment.

Any ideas on how to do this would be appreciated.

Which distro are you using?
There are ldap configuration guides.
You would need to make sure to add the firewall rule as well as configure the AD to allow ldap style connections 389/636.

You could use the unencrypted to make sure your ldap configuration is correct, then transition to the secure ldap with the certificate setups/tie in.
