If you're using LDAP on a network and DON'T require some sort of encryption, you are putting a HUGE SECURITY HOLE in your network. Encryption is there for a reason, especially for things like user authentication.

If you really want to go ahead with this bad idea, read the openLDAP documentation, and just enable user id/password or 'simple' authentication:
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/...tion%20Methods

Is there a REASON you don't want to bother with security of any sort?
