AS 10g / OID

Master node already installed and running.

While installing a replica node, after entering required values, i.e.:
     hostname: replica1.mycompany.com
     non ssl port number: 389
And did not check to use SSL box.

Click Next; receive message that it cannot or unable to connect to master OID server (also in install Actions log):

Cannot establish connection with the following input:
masterserver.mycompany.com port:389 bindDN: bindPwd: ***** SSL Socket Factory:,Error:*** Alert: Error retrieving the port settings from this Oracle Internet Directory. Verify that this Oracle Internet Directory, its database and listener are running, that it is configured to support SSL and non-SSL connections, and that you have entered the correct hostname and non-SSL port number.

From the master node's command prompt, both ports seem ok:

ldapbind -p 389 -D cn=orcladmin -w <password>
bind successful

ldapbind -p 636 -U 1 -D cn=orcladmin -w <password>
bind successful
