I have a 3rd party application that needs LDAP for authentication. I have a Windows 2008 R2 Active Directory server, and I would like it to be used as my LDAP server. The server and authentication is only used on my LAN.
1. How would I go about setting up unsecure LDAP on the AD server?
2. I would prefer to use LDAPS. If I wanted to install LDAPS on the server, would I need to have a verified certificate from a provider such as GoDaddy or Verisign? If I can just use the AD server without having to purchase a 3rd party certificate, could someone point me in the direction on how to setup this please?
