So I'm looking into programatically creating users in active directory from ruby using the ruby ldap lib. But I've ran into this issue were it appears that I cannot create passwords on port 389. From googling around it seems that the only way to set a password is on port 636. But I can't seem to figure out how to connect to it (even with a self signed cert).
I've downloaded ldp.exe on my local windows server 2003 and I have no problems connecting to 389 but 636 I just end up with a
Server error: <empty> &
Cannot open connection.
So I have 2 questions:
- Was the information I found regarding creating passwords on 636 correct? (can we only create passwords for users on port 636?)
- Is it possible to connect to port 636 without any certificate?
