Hi all,
I'm having the same problem here, the difference is that I don't use TLS at 
all. And I succeeded in connecting, updating the ldap server on my LOCALHOST, 
but then when I setup an IDENTICAL ldap server on another box, my evolution 
CAN connect to it, but CANNOT UPDATE/EDIT the address book. Very confusing.
Pls help.
Thanks.
