Configure LDAP

Remote Control provides Lightweight Directory Access Protocol Version 3 support. You can use LDAP to enable authentication and integration of users and their associated group membership into the Remote Control database.

All configuration information that is required for LDAP authentication is in the file. Before you configure, some prerequisite information must be obtained. This information simplifies the configuration process.

  • A user name and password to be used by Remote Control to establish a connection with the Active Directory server. This user name must have the authority necessary to read all the required information from the directory tree.
  • The fully qualified server host name or IP address of the Active Directory server to be used with Remote Control.
  • In an Enterprise scenario, a secondary backup LDAP server would also be configured in Remote Control.
