Add Users from Windows Active Directory

You can use the LDAP Servers tab in the Reflection for Secure IT User Manager to provision users who have accounts in Windows Active Directory. This enables you to support file transfers by Windows domain users who are working remotely. Authentication and group membership are managed on the LDAP server.
