Yes, research the problem.

On the DSA [LDAP server] is the slapd server listening on the expected

netstat --listen --tcp --program

Given the contents of /etc/openldap/ldap.conf [or wherever your client
LDAP config is] - does the hostname specified there resolve?  Is the
port specified the same the server is listening on?  Can you "telnet
hostname port-number" from the client and get a connection?

All this is just standard debugging steps.
