LDAP and SSL behavior in iPlanet 6.1

Hey, everyone. Not having gotten a response in the Sockets forum, and narrowing down my problem, I thought I'd come ask here.
I'm trying to build a servlet to reach out and get information from a secure LDAP instance. The stand-alone version of my code works just fine on my local machine, as does the servlet version. The stand-alone version works fine on the server machine, behind a load-balancer and firewall, but the servlet returns a SSLHandshakeException, informing me that the remote host closed the connection.
The server is using JDK 1.4.2_01. (We're using Netscape Enterprise Server 6.1, but it's identical as far as we can see to iPlanet 6.1.) I don't see anything in particular that might be throwing off the connection, so I thought to ask if anyone else has had to work around this problem.
