Specifies how Ricoh ProcessDirector secures the connection to the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server.
- None (default)
- The system connects to the LDAP server without using either the StartTLS operation or the LDAPS protocol.
- The system uses the StartTLS operation to secure the connection to the LDAP server and establish Transport Layer Security (TLS). After the connection is made, all messages are encrypted.
The system uses the Secure LDAP (LDAPS) protocol to connect to the LDAP server and establish Transport Layer Security (TLS). Messages are sent over a secure port.
Make sure that you add the port to the network IP address or the fully qualified host name in the LDAP server property.
- Database name
The connection to the LDAP server fails when the value of this property is ldaps and the secure port is not available. The default secure port is 636.
If your LDAP implementation uses StartTLS or LDAPS to secure the connection, set this property to the corresponding value before you test the LDAP settings.
If your LDAP implementation does not secure the connection to the LDAP server, leave this property set to None when you test the LDAP settings.
