NAME
       Net::LDAPS - use LDAP over an SSL connection

SYNOPSIS
        use Net::LDAPS;

        $ldaps = Net::LDAPS->new('myhost.example.com',
                                 port => '10000',
                                 verify => 'require',
                                 capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/');

        # alternate way
        use Net::LDAP;

        $ldaps = Net::LDAP->new('ldaps://myhost.example.com:10000',
                                verify => 'require',
                                capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/');

DESCRIPTION
       Communicate using the LDAP protocol to a directory server using an
       encrypted (SSL) network connection. This mechanism is non-standard but
       widely supported; consider using LDAPv3 with the standard TLS extension
       if possible (many servers do not support it yet.) See "start_tls" in
       Net::LDAP.

       All the normal "Net::LDAP" methods can be used with a "Net::LDAPS"
       object; see Net::LDAP for details.

CONSTRUCTOR
       new ( HOST [, OPTIONS ] )
           Create a new connection. HOST is the hostname to contact. OPTIONS
           is a number of key/value pairs. See "new" in Net::LDAP for details.

SEE ALSO
       Net::LDAP, IO::Socket::SSL

BUGS
       You cannot have more than one LDAPS connection at any one time, due to
       restrictions in the underlying Net::SSLeay code.
