How to tell if LDAP is listening


Check the ndsd is running
ndsdstat or /etc/init.d/ndsd status

Use netstat to tell if the LDAP ports are listening
netstat -tualpn -A inet| grep 'LISTEN' |egrep "636|389"

Should return the following:
tcp        0      0   *               LISTEN      8263/ndsd
tcp        0      0   *               LISTEN      8263/ndsd
