Make sure the Active Directory SSL certificate is in the keystore of whatever Illiad runs on and you are binding with a service account with Domain Admin privs.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] ILLiad and LDAP SSL connection issue

We have a strange problem with ILLiad, LDAP and a Windows 2008 server using SSL on port 636.

When I view the illiad logs it's clear the authentication only partially completes as the request is sent, ldap binds/authenticates, but the authentication isn't received by illiad.
The illiad log reports a time out. The odd thing is that the user can sometimes click the submit button again, or even just refresh the login page, and the authentication succeeds with the user getting to their ILLiad home page.

When I say that LDAP authenticates I mean we see the results on the logs, and of course, that strangeness where hitting the refresh or submit button takes a user to their home page. Had they not hit refresh or re-submit, we'd see the timeout.

We have no problems using non-ssl on 389 by the way.
Our Ldap server is Novell eDirectory server (now NetIQ) v8.8 sp5 on SLES

Any ideas would be really helpful.
