Configure LDAP Server#

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an open standard application protocol to access and maintain distributed directory information services over an IP network.

LDAP is a request-response type of protocol where each request is followed by a response.

Directory services allow information about users, systems, networks, services, and applications to be shared throughout the network.

In this section you will find information about configuring the LDAP server.
