LDAP Integration

You can use FileXpress Gateway's LDAP integration to add users who have accounts in Windows Active Directory. This enables network users to log on to the FileXpress Transfer Client using their domain credentials and transfer files. Each time an LDAP user logs in, current information is retrieved from the LDAP server.

To add users from an LDAP server

  1. Log in using the admin account and go to System > LDAP Servers.
  2. Click New.
  3. Enter information for connecting to your LDAP server. For details see LDAP Server Configuration in the Administrator's Guide.

    Note that the value for UserID must include the domain. For example:




  4. Click Test Connection to confirm that Gateway Administrator can access your LDAP server. This test verifies the connection, but does not save your settings.
  5. Click Save.

After you've added an LDAP server you can add users from that server to FileXpress transfer sites and groups. To view these users look for the LDAP server drop-down list on the configuration pages, and select your added server.
