Use a free LDAP server with Address Book
Authored by: meitar on Apr 30, '08 12:09:26AM

This sounds utterly awesome, but I can't seem to get it to work in Mac OS X 10.5.2. I tried using the command line ldapsearch tool but that didn't work either. Specifically, I'm using Address at Version 4.1 (687.1). Here are the settings I've used in the LDAP preferences:

Name: Tests
Port: 636 (though I also tried to use 389)
Use SSL: Checked (though I also tried unchecked—both port combinations)
Allow self-signed certificates: Checked (though I also tried unchecked—both port combinations)
Search Base:
Scope: Subtree
Authentication: Simple
User name: uid=myusername, ou=People,
Password: my password

It's a no-go. The command line gives me error output like this:

SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Unknown authentication method (-6)
	additional info: SASL(-4): no mechanism available: 

or like this if I try to use SSL (with the -Z flag to ldapsearch):

ldap_start_tls: Connect error (-11)
	additional info: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

What might be wrong, or is simply not compatible with Mac OS X 10.5.x Leopard?
