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.
