comment Using ApacheDS for Single-Sign-On for Google Apps
A Directory Server provides the data store for authentication, not single-sign-on as a mechanism. The directory server database contains user entries that contain passwords and/or certificates, either of which can be use for authentication (simple or SASL), but not single-sign-on functionality itself.

comment LDAP connection working for some applications but not others
Correct, telnet will indicate whether or not a connection can be established, but should not be used in this case because the connection might be established but the server unable to process a request due to load or some other factor. However, using a known good tool like ldapsearch will verify that the connection can be established and the authentication state of the LDAP session verified. Telnet is useless in the case where the server accepts the connection and but would be unable to process a request, and can give a false indication as to the health of the server.

comment How can I convert LDAP Timestamps in Libra Office to a date time format
Excellent. Ensure that the conversion cell supports the entire generalized time syntax as defined in rfc4517.
