Timing out in the ConfigTool trying to change the LDAPLoginAttr, BINDPW and BINDDN parameters.

The parameters needed to accomplish the encryption were being changed at the same time as the password which needed to be encrypted.
It was necessary to run the ConfigTool once and save the changes to the the LDAPLoginAttr, BINDPW and BINDDN parameters needed to do the encryption and then run it again to actually do the encryption.
The connection was successful after doing this.
