Sonicwall ldap users and groups setup
Posted on 2011-03-24
I have a sonicwall connecting to a 2008 server. I'm not totally clear on the authentication side of things. It seems to be overly complicated!
First authentication is either ldap or ldap +users. why would I need ldap+users?
What I want is to create an OU in A.D called sonicwall. I then create a group in that OU called sonicwall users (I will use it for possibly single sign or vpn users but at the moment its purely test environment) I make a user a member of the sonicwall users group. I would like only the users in this group to be able to access via vpn etc.
When I enter internal.local/users in the "Trees containing users:" section in the directory tab I can do a test using the test tab and it authenticates but this is obviously no good as any user in the /users folder would be able to authenticate, I want only the users in the sonicwall users group to authenticate but no matter what I put in "Trees containing users" it doesn't work.
I think I could be missing some fundamentals here! thanks
