   I don't think so.  AFAICT, the only way to create an SSL connection
is with ldapssl_init(host,port,1).  Everything else would be a TLS
upgrade initiated by start_tls.

On Novell, is it possible to say ldapssl_init(host, port, 0) and then 
upgrade that connection to an SSL connection later? (not TLS, but SSL)
