Hi Sebastien... many thanks for your response.

I went down the Mono route because everything I'd read on Novells own site
showed that the only way to get a .NET application to work with Novell LDAP
with SSL was to use the mono.security.dll

Yes, I used Mono's certmgr, but didn't use the "-m" option.
But as you say, it still wasn't working for the console app.

I haven't tried... I am being asked for connect my existing application to
their LDAP system.
I only wrote the console app as a quick way to test the connection... I
don't really have much LDAP knowledge, and no other applications that use

However... I think the solution has been given to me by Stéphane below  :-)
