We are using Windows Server 2003 and Active Directory. We have a application
that needs to authenticate to LDAP using SSL because of the ability to
change passwords. I plan on using a self-signed certificate. My question is
that, once you have installed the SSL certificate do use always need to
authenticate to SSL LDAP or is it just for applications that need it?
