We have a Novell eDirectory which requires SSL to connect. I can connect fine using a Java LDAP browser/edditor, but I cant seem to connect using ldapsearch from unix. My command line looks like:

ldapsearch -L -h -p 636 -D 'cn=myuser,ou=mygroup,o=myorg' -b o=myorg -s one 'ourgroup.APP GROUPS.ZEN.myorg' -P 3

I just get:
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Can't contact LDAP server

Yet I know the IP address and port are correct. Any ideas ?
