Net::LDAPS - use LDAP over an SSL connection
use Net::LDAPS; $ldaps = Net::LDAPS->new('myhost.example.com', port => '10000', verify => 'require', capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/'); # alternate way use Net::LDAP; $ldaps = Net::LDAP->new('ldaps://myhost.example.com:10000', verify => 'require', capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/');
Communicate using the LDAP protocol to a directory server using an encrypted (SSL) network connection. This mechanism is non-standard but widely supported; consider using LDAPv3 with the standard TLS extension if possible (many servers do not support it yet.) See "start_tls" in Net::LDAP.
All the normal
Net::LDAP methods can be used with a
Net::LDAPS object; see Net::LDAP for details.
Create a new connection. HOST is the hostname to contact. OPTIONS is a number of key/value pairs. See "new" in Net::LDAP for details.
You cannot have more than one LDAPS connection at any one time, due to restrictions in the underlying Net::SSLeay code.
