Configuring TTerm Connect and Active Directory (LDAP)

TTerm Connect supports LDAP/Active Directory for user management and access control. The following LDAP/Active Directory vendor implementations are supported:

  • Microsoft’s Active Directory
  • OpenLDAP
  • Lotus Notes

To enable the syncing of LDAP users and groups in TTerm Connect you must configure LDAP/Active Directory under the Server Configuration page of the Administrator Portal. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Login to the Administrator Portal and navigate to the Server Configuration page.
  2. Select the LDAP/Active Directory tab.
  3. You’ll see the LDAP/Active Directory Settings table lists existing LDAP configurations available to TTerm Connect. Initially this table will be empty, click the Add button to add a new server.
  4. Fill the LDAP configuration form with the relevant server details, nominating the directory type, host, port and access credentials.

Note that at several points in the form there are test buttons which will show return data from the LDAP server to assist in fine tuning the filters used for group and user import.

Sync An LDAP Directory

Once a directory is configured, you will need to sync that directory in order for TTerm Connect to import users and groups. To sync an individual LDAP directory select its entry in the LDAP/Active Directory Settings table and click or tap the Sync Selected button in the table footer. To sync all available LDAP configurations simply click or tap Sync All.

Alternately in the individual LDAP configuration you may set the On the Fly Creation option. This automates account creation on behalf of LDAP users when they successfully log in to the TTerm Connect system for the first time.

Once the sync is complete, synced users and groups will appear in the user manager colored blue and with the source clearly labelled LDAP/Active Directory.

  Note that LDAP users and groups are READ ONLY in TTerm Connect.
