ldap proxy server or other solution

Posted on 2007-10-03

I am setting up a new firewall that supports ldap and single sign on. The problem is that the firewall only sees global AD groups (not universal) and only has an area to enter info for one ldap server. I have multiple windows domains so not being able to use universal groups or have multiple ldap servers restricts me to only one domain. Is there a way to setup an ldap proxy server? This way I would configure the proxy server with th other ldap servers for each domain and configure the firewall with the ldap proxy server settings? Does anyone have any other suggestions or specific ldap proxy server products (if that would work). thanks

    Are we talking RADIUS here? - if so then Microsoft's IAS server (not to be confused with ISA Server) is worth looking at.

    SO after I install IAS on the server, I added domain controller A to domain B's IAS/RAS group. I am using domain controller A as the ldap server for the firewall, so shouldn't AD requests from the firewall, sent to domain controller A, for domain B be authenticated now? OR i am missing a step(s)? I still can't get it to work.
