hi guys

we're trying to configure a cloud based application to synchronise itself with our LDAP server which is on the LAN IP We've opened up the firewall ports also.

However, there's a section on this cloud application where you have to fill in the LDAP host name. It definitely doesn't work when I put just the external IP in there. My question is, what do I put in there? How would it know how to look at for our domain controller from the internet?

I've attached screenshot.
