ldap.conf question

I have the following ldap.conf

#
# LDAP Defaults
#

# See ldap.conf(5) for details
# This file should be world readable but not world writable.

BASE    dc=example,dc=com
URI     ldap://127.0.0.1 ldap://127.0.0.1:666

#SIZELIMIT      12
#TIMELIMIT      15
#DEREF          never

TLS_CACERTDIR   /etc/openldap/certs

Open in new window


This is a slightly modified version of what came with the openldap.  on the line

URI     ldap://127.0.0.1 ldap://127.0.0.1:666

Open in new window


I assume the second ldap: entry is normatively the ssl entry.

If so shouldn't it be the following ?

URI     ldap://127.0.0.1 ldaps://127.0.0.1:636

Open in new window


Or am I getting this wrong

Thanks

Not sure what your issue is but:
Port 636 is LDAP over SSL (LDAPS) , port 389 is LDAP.
TLS_CACERTDIR   /etc/openldap/certs will be where your certificate is installed that would be presented to a client if they connect to your server over port 636. The root cert will need to be installed on the client in the trusted root authority store. Certificate details (expiration, DNS name and if trusted) will need to be correct.
Base is the parent OU in the DS tree that LDAP(s) searches will begin from.
Auth credentials may be required also.
