How does the LDAP Discovery feature work on my Barracuda Web Filter?

All Barracuda Web Filters, all firmware versions.

If you are having trouble specifying the proper options for your LDAP or Active Directory server when integrating it with a Barracuda Web Filter, you can use the LDAP Discovery and the verbose feature to troubleshoot the information entered. To do so, specify the LDAP or Active Directory server's information and click the LDAP Discovery button. Any information you provide will be checked and either a green or red status icon will be shown next to each value.


You can also the use verbose version of the LDAP Discovery to gather more information about settings that are failing to test successfully. To use the verbose LDAP Discovery, click on Verbose under the LDAP Discovery button followed by the LDAP Discovery button. Information will be displayed beneath your configuration regarding the results of the LDAP test. If you are encountering a problem properly configuring a setting leaving it blank and run the Verbose LDAP Discovery, if any additional information is gathered that could lead to a suggestion, that information will be displayed.
