Description Thomas J. Baker 2005-04-13 15:12:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
At some point after FC4T1 but before FC4T2, evolution stopped talking to my ldaps servers for contacts. Yesterday I did an install of FC4T2 and then applied the latest updates and the problem persists. Under FC3, I had to add the line "TLS_REQCERT allow" to /etc/openldap/ldap.conf to get ldaps to work. This was no longer necessary under early FC4.

The ldaps server is running on my FC3 desktop and my FC3 evolution has no problems talking to it. From FC4, straight ldap works but ldaps fails.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. with evolution 2.2.2, try to connect to an ldap server using ldaps (port 636)

Actual Results:  "Error loading addressbook." 

Expected Results:  Contacts are returned.

Comment 1 Thomas J. Baker 2005-04-21 18:16:26 UTC
I fixed this by commenting out 

#BASE dc=example,dc=com
#TLS_CACERTDIR /etc/openldap/cacerts

and adding 


I don't know why this file was changed between fc3 and fc4 but with fc3, just
adding that last TLS_REQCERT line worked while with fc4, I had to comment out
those other three lines and add that one.
