That's not the usual way to do things, no. Most likely you should be using

Most likely ldap_install_tls() should never have been released as a public
API. You can't use it correctly without coordinating with the server, which
ldap_start_tls() already does. I suggest you forget that this function exists.
thanks for the recommendation. We are currently using ldap_install_tls() after calling
ldap_init_fd() with a file-descriptor connected to port 636 and a ldaps uri. Can
ldap_start_tls() but used in this case as well? I had the assumption that sending the
StartTLS exop at this state might confuse the server?
Thanks for your help.
