I believe you're right.. from the documentation:
Using a potentially encrypted (SSL) network connection, how do I conne
+ct to my server?
This class is a subclass of Net::LDAP so all the normal Net::LDAP meth
+ods can be used with a Net::LDAPS object; see the documentation for N
+et::LDAP to find out how to query a directory server using the LDAP p
The connection to the server is created when you create a new Net::LDA
+PS object, e.g.
$ldaps = Net::LDAPS->new($server,
port => '10000',
verify => 'require',
capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/',
There are additional options to the LDAPS new method and several addit
+ional methods are included in the LDAPS object class.
For further information and code examples read the LDAPS module docume
