Ldapmodify hangs

I would like to edit LDAP entries using ldapmodify, the tool freezes after submitting the password. Nothing happens. I use the following command (slightly anonymized).

ldapmodify -h localhost -D uid=remko.gerbranda,etc,etc -W -v 

ldap_initialize( ldap://our.server )

Enter LDAP Password: 

I tried the same with the administrator account.

Anybody an idea?

It’s not really intuitive. It looks like a freeze because I don’t get a prompt.
But you should just start typing and finish with Ctrl-D
