LDAP questions

Hi again: I have a few questions regarding LDAP.

1. In the new management console, under System - LDAP Servers, for each of my three LDAP sources I can view the certificate data ((CA, dates, etc.), but when I click the OK button I get a message stating I am missing a valid certificate. I suspect this is cosmetic, but I don't know for sure.

2. In the new management console, under System - LDAP Servers/General, there are fields for the LDAP User and LDAP User Password. I have a LDAP proxy user that we set up for other reasons. That user has a "NULL PASSWORD" and I want to user that user, however it needs a password. Is it possible to user this LDAP_Proxy user with a NULL PASSWORD? Or do I need to create a new user.

Thanks, Chris.

    Is this a self generated cert? Could just be that your browser don't
    know about the CA or have a patch of trust to that CA and therefor
    complains. I haven't yet played enough with GW 2014 to have a full
    grasp on this yet so this is just first thoughts on the topic

    Go with the new user. I hadn't even tried this with a NULL PASSWORD
    before, as to me the whole point was to secure it.
