    I think you may have some issues with 3rd party providers because of differences in the schema and user authentication methods.  The particular error you are seeing probably indicates that it is expecting to have an SSL secured connection in order to protect the credentials.

    I am not sure if there is an option to allow it to send unsecured credentials with this provider.  You will either need to use a secure (GSS-SPNEGO) bind or a simple bind with SSL.  If you check the documentation, you may get it to work if you use it like you would with ADAM and not AD.  If you have an SSL certificate, you might have a chance here.
