	Ahhhh... got it. So, you are using AD as a LDAP Server.
Sorry, I can't help you further, I never did that setup. :-(
But 'ldap ssl' is the way to go. Perhaps you should change the
ldap port to force it use another port. Maybe you should check
you ldap.conf.

	0400 is the best. But maybe you need a group with
read access, so 0440 will do the trick. Just take care of
the user:group configuration.
