I have an OpenLDAP server running in a test environment with a firewall on the LAN forwarding port 8636 back to slapd listening on 636 (for an older application which does not support START_TLS).
To test things, I started on the LAN by specifying
-p 8636 in the comamand line. This failed for some reason, so I went ahead and tried the same command on the LDAP server itself. I get the same error:
ldap1# ldapsearch -x -H ldaps://ldap1 -p 8636 ldapsearch: -H incompatible with -p
Huh? Why is this a problem? If I don't specify a port number, then it all works OK:
ldap1# ldapsearch -x -H ldaps://ldap1 # extended LDIF # # LDAPv3 ...
Is there any other way to tell
ldapsearch to use SSL on a different port or have I missed something in the syntax?
UPDATE per answer
ldap1# ldapsearch -x -H ldaps://ldap1:636 # extended LDIF # # LDAPv3
