Setting up a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) over SSL connection, open port 636/TCP on the AD/LDAP server, enables our Control Panel to authentication and/or import user information from your already established Active Directory. Depending on your desired outcome, each option can be used simultaneously or independent of each other.

LDAP Authentication and User Import Setup Break Down

Setting up LDAP to be used with our service can be broken down into 3 main parts. Each step has complete guides to ensure your LDAP Authentication and/or LDAP User Import works correctly.

Firewall Settings
Setting the proper Windows Server Firewall rules for an LDAP connection is very important. Our guides will show you how to setup an LDAPS (SSL/TLS or StartTLS) connection using port rule 636/TCP and set the correct border firewall IP addresses for our service. More Info
Server & User Details
Administrator details (Bind DN and password) and Base DN are needed to find the user details requested after connecting. Finding the Admin Bind DN and Base DN information only takes a few commands on the LDAP server. More Info
Enable LDAP Options
Setting up and Enabling LDAP Authentication and LDAP User Import makes managing an account simple. Save time and effort by taking advantage of your already established Active Directory to authentication and/or import users. More Info

LDAP Setup and Configuration Guides

Each part of the LDAP setup has complete guides to ensure your LDAP Authentication and/or LDAP User Import is secure and operational. All examples and instructions have been done on a Windows Server 2016, but these steps can be reproduced in Windows Server 2008r2 and newer releases up to 2016.
