Creating an LDAP authentication profile

To create an LDAP authentication profile, configured with minimum settings, the following are required:

  • Authentication that is granted against the Example corporate LDAP server, which can be reached through the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of ldap.example.com
  • Authentication that is configured with TLS and supports StartTLS

To configure the LDAP server URL with StartTLS ldap:// (for LDAP+SSL: ldaps:), use the following command:

vyatta@vyatta# set resources service-users ldap example.com url ldap://ldap.example.com

If a custom port is required, the port can be specified in the URL by appending the port number to the FQDN; for example: ldap://ldap.example.com:1234.

The default FQDN ports, according to a generally accepted standard, are as follows if not otherwise specified.
