LDAP Authentication after upgrade to 2.1

  • After i upgraded to

    Version	2.1-RELEASE (amd64) 
    built on Wed Sep 11 18:17:37 EDT 2013 
    FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p11
    You are on the latest version.

    i can't authenticate against the Domain Controllers any more.

  • Mmmm… just posted a related question. http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,71508.0.html

    Cannot help, but a bit more info might help your case.

    Do you need auth for openVPN or just to access pfSense web interface?

    Is from before 2.1 but it looks like this 'auth against a LDAP/AD' is still bleeding edge.

    Good luck.


  • It works here with no issues at all. Actually the only issue that I have is my Domain Controller is not on site, so If I lose connection to the server it takes forever for the connection to time out so I can log in with a local user. I'm hoping that this will be fixed in later releases.

    follow this guide: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=44689.0 and you should be good to go.

  • Followed the guide that Mike mentioned. (For pfSense 2.0 - 2.1 has some extra features like 'Extended Query' which I left blank)
    Changed level from 'One' to Entire subtree now the Diagnostics:Authentication page returns 1 group…

    My challenge with OpenVPN and the same LDAP/AD is still on going (= not working)

    I am connecting remotely to the pfSense box and do not want to change Authentication Server from local DB to LSP just yet.
