Login from CMC using LDAP to Win AD failing - failed to connect to specified host.


I've been able to successfully use the authentication wizard to configure LDAP to a remote Windows AD.  I was able to configure and add some groups.  That worked fine and created user aliases in CMC.  I did all the nss keystore and java .keystore work on the BOXI server and the CMC configuration worked as I said.

Now I'm having users from that domain try to log into CMC.  They are getting this error:

Account Information Not Recognized: The secLdap plugin failed to connect to the specified hosts. (FWB 00028)

I then proceeded to have the firewall opened up for the web server/ in addition to the BOXI server.  I tested from that server using ldp.exe successfully.

Can anyone advise on this?  Was opening ports on the web server needed?  Do I need to do more keystore configs on this web server?
