Actually, my first name is Giannis, which is the greek equivelent of the 
English name "John". No harm done :)

Regarding your configuration:
1) port: My port is 3268. Unless you have only one server, you should use the 
server running the Global Catalog service. This is usually the first server in 
your domain.

2) bind_dn: You should use ONLY the username. For security reasons, I wouldn't 
use the administrator's account, becouse you would put his passowrd in plain 
text(*BAD*). Create a simple user for LDAP-only queries. In eitheir case, use 
JUST the username. Example:
     'bind_dn' => 'ldapuser',

3) dn & objectClass: remove these for now. These are just used to filter our 
results. You should first get SOME results, and they try to filter them.

Let me know how it works out.
