Apache2 auth to eDirectory

I'm trying to get Apache2 on another server to authenticate via the
edirectory tree.

I've Installed ...
SuSE Enterprise server 9 OES
iManager 2.5
Apache 2 ( on several other servers - cluster )
.... and all are working.

I've done a ldapsearch from the Apache2 server with a successful find on 4
test users I've added.

I've configured Apache's default-server.conf main directory with the
following attributes:
AuthType Basic
AuthName InternalUser
AuthLDAPAuthoritiative On
AuthLDAPUrl "ldap://"
require valid-user

SideNote: I was able to get the authentication working on the Apache server to
1) a Novell based edirectory tree
2) an Active Directory tree
3) a Netscape Directory Services tree
by changing the IP and orgname in the AuthLDAPUrl line above.

However, getting it to work on a Linux based eDirectory tree is getting me ...
Authentication Failed! Do you want to retry?

And the log says:
[warn] client IP 13516 auth_ldap authenticate: user test1 authentication
failed; URI /local/lana.htm [ldap_simple_bind_s() to check user
credentials failed] [Invalid credentials]

I've reset the password several times, and rebooted the both the web server and the edirectory server.

We're good!

It seemed having TLS turned off was best. Since it's backlan and protected, having it off will only help performance anyway.
