Can not Authenticate to LDAP

Good Afternoon,

I am VERY new to Openfire and a rookie with LDAP!

I am trying to test/install Openfire on a machine.The intent is to have a small department IM system. We want to use LDAP so we do not have any password issues…

Installed openfire_3_6_4.exe and chose the internal database.

Started to run the admin console

Server Type = Active Directory

Host = 10.10.10.24 Port = 389

Base DN = cn=users,dc=subdomain,dc=domain,dc=org (seperate forest for the subdomain)

Administrator DN = cn=ad3admin,cn=admin accounts,cn=users,dc=subdomain,dc=domain,dc=org

Password =pa55w0rd (not really) :slight_smile:

When I try to test, I get the following:\

Test: Connection Settings

Status: Error

Error authenticating with the LDAP server. Check supplied credentials.

(This is a Windows machine)

So for the simple question…

What the heck am I doing wrong???

maybe you have to change it to:

cn=ad3admin,ou=admin accounts,ou=users,dc=subdomain,dc=domain,dc=org
You can always take a look here:

I found a typo… so that was a big part. I will have to check out the link you gave me…

Can the client be configured to auto login based on PC login?

Can we disable some accounts from being listed or access to the system?

Lots to learn… tryung to get my mind around all of it quickly :wink: Also found an issue with DNS :frowning:

Sure, Spark features Single Sign On and can auto-grab your domain credentials. As for disallowing users, you can use LDAP features to do that, or you can lock them out via the openfire console. See attached pictures.
