Description of problem:
I can't use the distributed version of auth_ldap to connect to an ldap server
that only supports ldaps.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Try using the authldapurl of ldaps://somehost.com
Actual Results: It reports invalid ldap url.
Expected Results: It should have connected to the ldapserver on the ldaps port.
I've seen several requests for this feature on the auth_ldap mailing list, and
sent in a patch to the owner, in fact from the mailing list, it looks like
several people have written this same patch, but apparently he does not want to
add it, so maybe I can make my plea to have it added in here.
