TrueConf Server supports LDAP data transmission and offers a variety of advantages for enterprises:

  • Automatic synchronization of user data.
  • No authorization at the workplace within the network.
  • Transparent, fast and easy administration.
  • Secure administration.
  • Support for Active Directory.

You won’t need to manually create user profiles for each employee of your company in TrueConf Server control panel and keep the user database updated independently (rename users, send forgotten passwords, delete information about former employees, etc.)

How TrueConf Server Syncs Information with LDAP

TrueConf Server connects with LDAP server over the same protocol and requests information about users in the local network of the selected domain. Once information is received, the server automatically syncs its data with LDAP server data and independently makes all the changes that follow.

Consequently, users of TrueConf client applications no longer need to be authorized at the workplace within the corporate network. TrueConf Server receives a request from TrueConf client application and, in turn, inquires LDAP server whether the corresponding user is available. Once confirmation is received, the server automatically authorizes the user.

How to Setup Integration between TrueConf Server and LDAP/Active Directory

LDAP server synchronization mode will be available on TrueConf Server when LDAP/Active Directory extension is included in its license. This extension is paid, but you can request a free trial for up to three weeks.

Automatic User Authentication

The users in your private network can access their client applications at  workplace without entering their username and password. To do it, administrator should check the NTLM authentication box when configuring the integration with Active Directory/LDAP server.

Please note that authentication settings come into effect only after the first manual app authentication; the users should authorize with their PC user account.
