LDAP over SSL authentication not working

Hello everybody,


I've just installed and updated the Expedition VM and I'm trying to configure LDAP (Active Directory) authentication. It works fine when contacting the domain controller over port tcp/389 without SSL, but it doesn't work if I set SSL (and port tcp/636, of course). The domain controller uses a self signed certificate for the LDAP service. I tryed to import the CA certificate on the Expedition VM at /etc/ssl/cert. but nothing changed. I know that the domain controller is well configured for LDAP over SSL, since I already use this type of authentication for other services, including admin authentication on Palo Alto firewalls. Any suggestion?


Thank you in advance

Solved by adding

TLS_REQCERT     never

into /etc/ldap/ldap.conf


Hope this helps someone else.
