User authentication through private IP LDAP/Active Directory from website

For a project I need to authenticate users on the website with their LDAP credentials. The problem is, the LDAP server is on a private IP and the website is not withing the same network. I already use the LDAP to log the users in the Intranet, which is on the same server as the LDAP.

Is there a way to communicate with the private LDAP from outside of the network ?

Some research seems to points to SSL connection, but I can't find a clear answer.

Any help is welcome.

Edit: Using a VPS worked out, thanks !


you can use a virtual private network. the answer lies here.

it will be independent of the os you are using.
