If you are running a client on the server machine, the client info will be mixed in with the server info on
I believe you will only get the server [slapd] on localmessages

You have to choose either ldap [port 389] with tls,
Ldaps [port 636]

I am assuming you have a tls_cacert and either a uri with ldap://... Or ldaps://
As appropriate, in /etc/ldap.conf of the client machine.

 slapd was not started with the proper options to listen on ldaps:/// (port
 Your -h command line option should include it, e.g. '-h ldap:///
 ldaps:///'. See slapd(8) for more details.

There is a control file on Fedora 15 for ldaps or tls
 cat /etc/sysconfig/ldap
 # Options of slapd (see man slapd)
 # At least one of SLAPD_LDAP, SLAPD_LDAPI and SLAPD_LDAPS must be set to 'yes'!
 # Run slapd with -h "... ldap:/// ..."
 # yes/no, default: yes
 # Run slapd with -h "... ldapi:/// ..."
 # yes/no, default: no
 # Run slapd with -h "... ldaps:/// ..."
 # yes/no, default: no
 # Run slapd with -h "... $SLAPD_URLS ..."
 # This option could be used instead of previous three ones, but:
 # - it doesn't overwrite settings of $SLAPD_LDAP, $SLAPD_LDAPS and $SLAPD_LDAPI options
 # - it isn't overwritten by settings of $SLAPD_LDAP, $SLAPD_LDAPS and $SLAPD_LDAPI options
