Using my client app I wrote I can receive a "Connection reset" error
from the OpenLDAP server if I leave the app idle long enough however the
idletimeout directive in slapd.conf is not specified so the default
should be to never time out. Is a connection reset message the same
thing as connection closed message? I'd assume so which begs the
question, why did it do that if the timeout is disabled by the lack of
the idletimeout directive in slapd.conf?
Connection reset means the TCP layer forcibly closed the connection.
Typically that happens because a router between the client and the
server forced the connection to close, but sometimes it means the server
crashed and rebooted while the connection was open. Anyway, if there is
no idletimeout set on slapd, then slapd has nothing to do with it.
