i am trying to write my own client which connects to an active directory and searches for an user. So far it works, i call "ldap_initialize", set version 3, "ldap_simple_bind_s" and then search the directory.
Now i want the connection to be secure by executing a "Simple TLS handshake". I changed my hostname variable to "ldaps://ip:636" and tried "ldap_start_tls_s(ld,NULL,NULL)" before the bind but get a "cant contact ldap server" error. I think my active directory is configured the right way because with JXplorer it works over ssl and port 636.

Does anyone know which functions i have to call so a successful tls connection will be set up?
