I need to find some LDAP information specifically ldap-login-dn, ldap-base-dn, ldap-naming-attribute, etc.  I wanted to know how I go about finding this information?

Is this for AD or another LDAP directory?  If for AD you can look at the link below that will show you the names behind the GUI

Thanks

If you just want to see the LDAP "stuff" then you can use http://directory.apache.org/studio/ LDAP Browser.

You may need to find suitable login credentials to use with AD and often this is the hard part: http://ldapwiki.willeke.com/wiki/LDAP%20and%20Active%20Directory

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

To be even more specific my ISP is making a VPN connection with their ASA.  They are asking for:


ldap-login-dn
Specifies the name of the directory object that the system should bind as.

ldap-login-password
Specifies the password for the login DN.

ldap-base-dn
To specify the location in the LDAP hierarchy where the server should begin searching when it receives
an authorization request

ldap-naming-attribute
Specifies the Relative Distinguished Name attribute (or attributes) that
uniquely identifies an entry on the LDAP server.

Server-port
                Port number for communicating with the LDAP server

I appreciate all the input and advice.  Thanks for the responses.

ldap-login-dn
Specifies the name of the directory object that the system should bind as.
-> This will need to be the fully distinguished name of the user that they will use to find users.
The account will need to have rights to see what the applicaiton needs to return. This should probably be a read-only account and NOT ADMINISTRATOR.


ldap-login-password
Specifies the password for the login DN.
-> password for above

ldap-base-dn
To specify the location in the LDAP hierarchy where the server should begin searching when it receives
an authorization request
-> This is the distinguished name of the container where your users are, something like: CN=Users,DC=yourdomain,DC=com


ldap-naming-attribute
Specifies the Relative Distinguished Name attribute (or attributes) that
uniquely identifies an entry on the LDAP server.
-> if AD, this is probably CN

Server-port
                Port number for communicating with the LDAP server
->Should be 636 and LDAPS (or 389 and TLS) as otherwise, the password would be in clear text on the wire.
