Managing LDAP users

The SMC server can be connected to an LDAP server to authorize the company’s users to manage a pool of firewalls.

This type of authentication is intended to work with an LDAP server such as Active Directory on Microsoft Windows Server 2016, 2019 and 2022 or OpenLDAP in at least version 2.5.

Authentication via Radius server is configured in the SMC web administration interface.

To authorize administrators to connect to the SMC server via an LDAP server, follow the three steps below:

  1. Configure the connection to the LDAP server,
  2. Test the connection to the server,
  3. Authorize users and define their access privileges.
