    Hello,

    I have been running a Win2003 server AD happily for a while but this ldap query is new to me. I am aware the AD runs an ldap service and I would like to find out how to address/access that service. I am trying to “point” an application to the ldap directory service for user authentication.

    It is asking for our LDAP server details.

    Where I would find the corresponding required parameters?

    I have included some examples.

    ldap host: ldap://localhost:389
    I understand that the ldap host would be ldap://servername:389

    Base DN: ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com
    If my domain is localdomain.com.au.local what would this be?

    Bind DN:
    Not sure what this is or why it would be required.

    Bind Password:
    Not sure what this is or why it would be required.

    Search Attribute: uid
    I understand that this is the variable the application will use to search (UserID).

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks
