Secure LDAP bind fails php

Dear PHP Programmers,

Here is what I have:

PHP Version 4.3.8
LDAP Support enabled
RCS Version $Id: ldap.c,v 2004/06/01 21:05:33 iliaa Exp $
Total Links 0/unlimited
API Version 2004
Vendor Name OpenLDAP
Vendor Version 20122

I am trying to use LDAP to authenticate my users via LDAP. But I am
running into a problem...

When I try to use ldap_bind() with a secure connection (by specifiying
port 636), the page just hangs.

Here is my code:


$username = "fake";
$password = "fakepasswo rd";

$reporting = error_reporting ( E_ERROR | E_PARSE | E_CORE_ERROR |

$ds=ldap_connec t("ldap.byu.edu ","636"); // must be a valid LDAP
if ($ds) {
echo "Binding ...";
$bind=ldap_bind ($ds, "uid=" . $username . ",ou=People,o=u sc.edu",
if ($bind == false) {
echo "BAD AUTH<br>";
else {
echo "bind=" . $bind . "<br>";
echo "userdn=" . $userdn . "<br>";
echo "AUTH OK<br>";
echo "Closing connection";
ldap_close($ds) ;
When I load it in a web browser, all I get is "Binding... " and it just
sits there.

If I change the port to 389, it works fine.
Any ideas?

Am I the only person that has had this problem? Maybe someone out
there knows a better list to post this question?

I am trying to connect to my college LDAP directory using ASP.NET. This LDap does not have security as it returns only user demographic information. I can only bind anonymously to this ldap.

I'm trying to troubleshoot an issue where users are not able to bind with LDAP via "GetObject" through our ASP Classic Intranet if they stay logged in overnight (beyond their allowed login hours). The problem does not occur when performing the same bindings using a logon script. So, the user logs in, is able to perform queries all day, and then fails to log out at the end of the day. We'd prefer that they did log out nightly, but it...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
