How to find the LDAP IP address , domain and base DN

Hi

We have a cloud based program which we have subscribed. I have been told that I will be able synch with our active directory , so that staff can use the same password that they use at work to log into the web based program.

To setup this LDAP functionality they have asked me the following information:
* Our LDAP IP address ?
Will this be my domain controller IP address?

* Our LDAP domain
How to find this value ?

* Our Base DN
How to find this value ?

Any help to find this would be great
Thanks

We have 3 Domain controllers, will it be need to be the primary domain controller IP address.

Our FQDN is:  Domain.Local so please let me know what will be my base DN, not sure how to get this value from ADSIEdit

Yes that is right , They have asked to open port 636 to  given external IP address 77.x.x.x
Our Domain controller IP is 10.x.x.x.

So will my firewall team needs to open 10.x.x.x on port 636 to 77.x.x.x


Thanks

Yes, that is the base DN but they might be looking for the DN where users are in. Please post this OU

Please see my AD structure.

Under Staff OU there are 6 OUs  and on each of the 6 OUs, there are users.

So user's DN is LDAP://OU=Staff,DC=Domain,DC=Local
and base DN is LDAP://DC=Domain,DC=Local

As our cloud based software vendor asked me to open port 636 on our firewall for the LDAP functionality.
I had  asked our hosted firewall team to open port 636  on IP 77.x.x.x  pointing to IP address 10.x.x.x (Domain controller IP)

Our firewall team have come back saying 636 is for LDAP running over SSL.
They are asking if our LDAP server run on this port?
This means are they referring to my  domain controller  and do i need to install SSL on my DC?


They say they can run on port 389 (non-secure)

Please advise
Thanks
