I do the following testing, use a running "ftp" to instead of existed
LDAP, and with its corresponding port,
# ldapsearch -x -H ldap://192.168.123.1:22
Here, 192.168.123.1 is a ftp server with port 22 open.
When I execute the command, it seems to be hung without any error
I think, if the ldap server or port is not available, it would return
with error message immediately.
How do you think of this interesting testing?
I think you are having ldapsearch talk to an open port running a different
protocol, and ldapsearch is likely waiting for a protocol specific
response, since the port is open. I think your "test" is rather odd. Of
course, if you specified a timeout to ldapsearch, I bet it'd stop hanging.
