Configuring Splash page auth with an LDAP server requirments

Hello ,

I'm trying to configure the LDAP authentication but i'm getting "i access point failed to connect " . I'm using the LDAP for other product and it is working without any issue . My question is do i have to create a certificate for TLS ? Is it the same requirements as AD authentication in "https://documentation.meraki.com/zGeneral_Administration/Other_Topics/Certificate_Requirements_for_T..." ?

The certificate is used to encrypt communication between Cisco Meraki devices and a Domain Controller . And if you configured the domain controller correctly on meraki cloud and also configured the certificate correctly then it is easy for meraki cloud to get the certificate details from the server . Please check the below link .

Kind of a big deal

Re: Configuring Splash page auth with an LDAP server requirments

Meraki normally always wants to send sensitive information - like passwords - over an encrypted channel.  I would be surprised if it would allow LDAP only.  I think it would want to use LDAPS.  So yes, if your AD controller does not have a certificate yet I think you would need to add one.

Once the certificate was created on Windows Server.  What is the next step?

1. Verify that you  added the certificate as trusted root certificate on your domain server 

2. Go to Access Control >>Splash page >> select sign-on with "my LDAP server"

3. enter the LDAP server ip address and port # 389 

4. Enter the LDAP admin details "cn=admin,dc-domain,dc=com"

5.Test the connection

Thank you for your input.

 

This procedure is clear but How Meraki knows what is the correct certificate? Is necessary to do the same procedure on cisco Meraki cloud controller?
