Hello all, I have a Question pertaining to the way that LDAP Servers are contacted.

I have configured LDAP to contact our On-Prem AD via an external IP from the GSAD which is running on a VM running on AWS, but Login does not work. I already tested ldapsearch on the same System via CLI, which worked without a problem.

And as such I wanted to ask, if maybe anyone has an Idea what i could try?

If any further Info is needed, I can get that for you.

LDAP works for me generally in GVM 20.08. Could you give some more details on the “Login not working” and the steps you did for the configuration (e.g. used but anonymized Auth. DN).

Maybe only a configuration step like choosing the correct Auth. DN or allowing a user to login via LDAP is missing?
