Does TMG2010 support LDAP authentication for outbound web access


does anybody know if TMG already supports outbound LDAP authentication? Until beta1 of TMG it was officially announced as unsupported? It is working fine for inbound connections (publishing rules).

Not sure if I am undertanding your question. LDAP and AD authentication has been supported from day 1 of TMG RTM release and can be selected under the Users tab of the access rule.

I mean if I can use LDAP authentication for outbound web access rules? For example I want to create URL Set with denied sites and apply it to a user or group.
I believe the answer is no.
LDAP is only available for certain types in inbound Auth (AFAIK)

Right-click the outbound access rule and select properties.

Click add - click new - this will run the new user set wizard
Give it a name

select type (choose from radius, ldap, SecurID or AD)

Don't forget to remove any other authentication options such as all users etc
