LDAP Proxy

The JAMF Software Server (JSS) allows you to enable an LDAP Proxy. Enabling an LDAP Proxy creates a secure tunnel to allow traffic to pass between a JSS and an LDAP directory service. For example, if your environment uses a firewall, an LDAP Proxy can be used to allow a directory service on an internal network to pass information securely between the directory service and the JSS.

The Infrastructure Manager hosts the LDAP Proxy. After you install an instance of the Infrastructure Manager, the JSS allows you to enable an LDAP Proxy if you have an LDAP server set up in the JSS.


To configure an LDAP Proxy, you need the following:

Configuring the LDAP Proxy

  1. Log in to the JSS with a web browser.

  2. In the top-right corner of the page, click Settings images/download/thumbnails/12988462/Settings_icon.png .

  3. Click System Settings.

  4. Click LDAP Servers images/download/thumbnails/12988462/LDAP_Servers.png .

  5. Click the LDAP Server to which you want to assign an LDAP Proxy.

  6. Click Edit.

  7. Select the Enable LDAP Proxy checkbox.

  8. Select the proxy server to use and enter a port number.
    This port must be opened, inbound, on your firewall and also on the computer on which the Infrastructure Manager is installed.
    Note: The suggested port is 8389. If required by your network setup, this port can be changed to any open, unused port above 1024.

  9. Click Save.
