  When you're binding as a user, for authentication, you can't re-use
the same connection for multiple requests.  So you've got to
open/close individual connections.

  If you're just doing DB lookups, and not "LDAP bind as user", then
it should open multiple connections.

  Why are you having your LDAP server perform authentication?  Why not
use LDAP as a database, and have FreeRADIUS do the authentication?

  Sure, edit the source code.
