LDAP Configuration

Hi Folks,

we are configuring LDAP for MWS and IS users, One of the user was asking does his password will be transfered in clear text over the network, when trying to access one of the LDAP configured server.

So any thoughts will the password would be encrypted or will be passed in clear text from webmethods server login to LDAP server for validation ?

Hi Sandeep, if you are using “ldap” Ex: ldap://localhost:389 then it is unsecured and passed as clear text. If you setup is using “ldaps:” Ex: ldaps://secure.server.domain.com:636 then it is secured on the line.
