LDAP-UX will not bind

I'm trying to configure an LDAP-UX client (HP-UX 11.23) to talk to an openLDAP server running on SLES. I've configured a proxy user and I'm able to use that user to successfully poll the server with ldapsearch. I've configured that user into the prced file using the ldap_proxy_config utility. The LDAP-UX daemon will not bind to the DNS server. Here's what I see in syslog when I start ldapux:

Apr 15 11:50:25 bocfail1 syslog: pid:19179 - ldap_common.c:1640:_hp_ldap_simple_bind(): bind request timed out
Apr 15 11:50:25 bocfail1 syslog: pid:19179 - ldap_common.c:2360:_hp_ldap_bind_by_my_uid(): _hp_ldap_bind_by_cred() returned:-1 for proxy user

Apr 15 11:50:47 bocfail1 syslog: pid:19192 - ldap_common.c:1640:_hp_ldap_simple_bind(): bind request timed out

The results of ldap_proxy_config -v are:
File Credentials verified - INVALID

Other commands such as id and nsquery also fail, obviously.

Any advice on where to look would be greatly appreciated. Also, I'd like to get this to work with openLDAP though I know the HP-UX version of the DNS server is preferred.

Thanks,
Kevin
