ldaps being id as ssl

L4 Transporter



So I have a rule 


ldap client -> ldap server allow ldap app


ldap app includes ldaps (636)


so I test this 

ldapsearch  ldaps://ldapserver


gets blocked as ssl.


what am I supposed to do ?

Update the security rulebase entry that you made (or make a new one) that allows ssl with a custom service object for 636/tcp between the client and the server. Without decrypting the ldaps connection this traffic won't identify properly without it. 

Thats a pain.

so I have a rule that has ldap and default ports. now I need a new rule called ldaps with app ssl and port 636 ...


it is what it is


@BPry  if I create my own application - with parent app-id being ssl could I then use that application would the pa use my application ?
