No - I didn't understand you correctly.  I switched back to ldap://:389 and sniffed and it was all there in the clear.

I need to encrypt the communication (and binding) of the replication from the Master to the Slave.  I can not seem to get it to work and I can't find the documentation where it shows how to set the replication for the syncrepl to be SSL or TLS.

I think I see what you are saying.   The ldaps:  is forcing the implied SSL not startTLS.   Thanks for making me think different.   

so now I just need to switch back to ldap:// and make sure TLS is setup and sniff to make sure the traffic is encrypted.

You are confused. LDAPv3 startTLS is used to encrypt connections over port
389 (or other ports).  The Ldapv2 HACK to do TLS over port 636 (ldaps://)
is the other way of doing SSL encryption.   You are mixing these two very
different mechanisms.
