Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DIRAPI-40) LdapNetworkConnection should throw an exception when startTls() method is called and the LdapConnectionConfig has the 'useSsl' flag set to true
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2011 04:47:39 GMT
Hello Emmanuel,

forgive my ignorance. Does startTLS work fine over a Firewall ?

I am asking because on the site where I am working in my day job we are
using LDAPS over a Firewall.

Best regards,
