Configuration Options
6.8.7. LDAP Parameters
The RPC supports LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol,) which allows
authentication via the "Active Directory" network Directory Service. When LDAP is
enabled, command access rights can be granted to new users without the need
to define individual new accounts at each RPC unit, and existing users can also be
removed without the need to delete the account from each RPC unit. This also allows
administrators to assign users to LDAP groups, and then specify which plugs the
members of each group will be allowed to control at each RPC unit.
In order to apply the LDAP feature, you must first define User Names and associated
Passwords and group membership via your LDAP server, and then access the RPC
command mode to configure LDAP settings and define port access rights and
command access rights for each group specified at the LDAP server. To access the
LDAP Parameters menu, login to RPC command mode using a password that permits
Administrator level commands. In the Text Interface, the LDAP Parameters menu is
accessed via the Network Configuration menu (/N for IPv4 parameters or /N6 for IPv6
parameters.) In the Web Browser Interface, both IPv4 and IPv6 parameters are defined
via a single LDAP Parameters menu, which is accessed via the flyout menus under the
Network Configuration link.
