SonicWall TZ200 Content Filtering Service

We recently purchased a SonicWall TZ200 firewall with SonicWall's content filtering service.  My question is to see what others are doing for authentication of users to the firewall.  Are you having your end users logon to the firewall, or are you setting it up through AD and LDAP?

My concern with AD and LDAP is if your LDAP server goes down, then internet access is blocked for all users.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks,

You can try SSO for web (and other) access. You can run two agents each on one domain server. This way you will have some fail over in palace. Since you have only one sonicwall in place and you can not cluster it worrying about the AD server downtime is a moot point.
You would use LDAP more for user authentication when they coming from WAN over IPsec VPN (remote access).

Good luck!
