I'm trying to setup a secure ldap server, it works fine over the standard port 389 now. but since i access the server remotely i'd like to use ldap over ssl over port 636. however i can't find any howto's for setting that up on debian (i'm working on testing). so i would be happy if anyone has
good links or can give me some hints on how to set it up.

This was pretty helpful for me:


And of course, the official docs. The Quick Start Guide is a must:

Keep in mind that you can use Start TLS on port 389 (which is what I always do). You don't have to use SSL on 636.
