Only Barracuda Web Filters that are talking to Apple LDAP servers, firmware version 3.0.x or newer.

The LDAP server shipped by Apple Server is a variant of the Open LDAP server (open source LDAP). To configure the Barracuda Web Filter, execute the following steps:
  1. Go to the Users/Groups > External Directory Services or Users/Groups > Authentication Services page of the Barracuda Web Filter's interface, and click the LDAP tab (if present).
  2. Assign the LDAP Server Alias, LDAP Server (either IP or local hostname), LDAP Port (389), and LDAP Encryption (None) values.
  3. Assign the Bind DN as follows:

    uid=<admin uid>,cn=users,dc=<ldap hostname>,dc=<domain-name>,dc=com

  4. Assign the Bind Password (for admin uid user).
  5. Assign the LDAP Search Base as follows:


  6. Lastly, set the UID Attribute to uid
Additional Notes:
The apple-generated uid value may show up when performing an LDAP Discovery, but you can ignore this - simply use uid as the UID Attribute.
