But now, I can use non standard port on simple proxy dovecot config
with userdb/passdb on LDAP.

I think that the problem is with dovecot director, that if there are
port/host on pass_attrs , then, it doesn't append host="assigned host"
and then, dovecot proxy says that can't find loop to proxy.

If i don't tell port on pass_attrs, then the director are running on
standard ports. with simple proxy without director with host/port on
ldap it's running ok.
