You need to provide more details.

Since my packages enable logging to /var/log/ldap2.3/ldap.log by default, if
you have a decent log level, and you aren't seeing connections, then something
else is wrong.
I suspect it is a
problem with the nss_ldap package that comes bundled with RHEL 4.4.
I doubt it. My packages are intended to be installed in parallel with the
RHEL4 packages, and have no impact on any packages supplied by RHEL. I run
nss_ldap from RHEL4 (4.6) on all my production LDAP servers that run my 2.3
packages, without problems.
I cannot compile the software on my system as it is a partial install
clients of ours and does not get delivered with compiler software.
It's unlikely that compiling the software would make a difference.
Does anyone know of an updated rpm for nss_ldap to be compatible
openldap2.3 and RHEL 4?
It is unnecessary, the nss_ldap built against RHEL's 2.2 libraries is
Maybe you would like to provide some configuration details, some example
output when you use openldap utilities to search your server etc.
