Secure LDAP

  • The LDAP stores directory information and address book contact details. It is accessed from the components on the server and may be accessed (as per policy) by desktop email clients for the address book. During setup, MCS asks you whether you would like to allow access for the users on the LAN to the LDAP address book and directory.

This is a firewall control and can be changed by modifying the following file:

# /mithi/mcs/modules/mithi-system/conf/server/ldap.fw.conf.sh
  • If you have permitted local users on the LAN to have access to the LDAP server, then there would be a line:
ALLOWED_INTERFACE=$LOCAL_ACCESS_LAN_CARD
  • Change that and ensure that the following line is present in the file:
ALLOWED_INTERFACE=127.0.0.1
  • Restart the Firewall.
