I am trying to connect to zimbra ldap from remote machine .
I run ldapsearch -h fqdn -x -D 'binddn' -S '' -w passwd -b "ou=people,etc." .
The error message i get is ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE) : can't contact LDAP server .
Now if i run this ldapsearch directly on the zimbra machine , it works fine except i found out i have to use that -x option which i am not familiar with and i haven't seen this sasl thing before either .
Anyone know to point me in the right direction ?
