I am setting up a sonicwall to query ldap on a 2008 server for vpn users, I have set the dns on the sonicwall to the 2008 server and the correct username and password. I used softerra ldap administration tool to verify connectivity and all looks good but I keep getting error credentials not valid at ldap server. see screen dumps thanks ldap config ldap error

Hmm is the data in the link correct as the second screen dump of the sonicwall settings it states "enter display name here" this doesn't look right, surely it should be the administrator username and not a user display name?
I tried both but neither worked when I tested using the test tab

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

under the third tab, directory tab, make sure you have the domain/OU where the user is located that you are trying to authenticate. for instance, if your domain is domain.int and you're trying to use a domain administrator account, then you'd want the two fields on the directory page to look like this:

Primary Domain: domain.int
User tree for login to server: domain.int/users

then, type the username and password under the first tab with ONLY the username in the username field and the password. i would, for now, disregard trying LDAP with TLS. when you get LDAP to work, add TLS later if you want.

just one final thing if I may. when I do a test for a user in active directory, ldap authentication succeeds but when I go to ldap users and select import users I get: Error: LDAP directory mismatch ?
