Uhm, wrong there. But a common mistake.
 LDAP is a *protocol* (like HTTP is a protocol).
 eDirectory is software (like Squid is software).

That helper is for performing Digest authentication with an eDirectory
backend. It uses LDAP to communicate to that eDirectory software.

That helper is for performing Basic authentication with *any* backend
that speaks LDAP protocol.

-h parameter takes a hostname,  "ldaps://" is a URI.

Those test lines are Basic auth inputs.

Use Digest auth inputs for testing Digest helpers.
