no error message when LDAP replication fails (on bad port)

1) set your LDAP port to 123 or something bogus
2) replicate

looking at the UI, replication never starts.  The progress dialog comes up, but 
its in an uninitialized state.

we should be letting the user know what we failed to establish a connection or 

I bet we have similar problems if we fail to connect to the server if the 
server is down, or if the dns lookup failed.

This is because currently the UI doesnot display any messages for either
completion success or failure. We also need to return different error codes if
we want to display different error messages but the first thing we should do is
display a generic success or failure message. Will change the UI for that.

For generic success message: "Connection to the LDAP server succeeded."
For generic failure message: "Connection to the LDAP server failed."

For bad port error: "Connection to the LDAP server failed. Verify that you
entered the correct port number for the directory server, and then try again."

taking - this needs to be driven forward, and we should display specific error
