External Server Type
Determine the type of external servers included in the synchronization topology. See Overview of PingDataSync Server for a list of supported servers.
LDAP Connection Settings
Determine the host, port, bind DN, and bind password for each external server instance(s) included in the synchronization topology.
Security and Authentication Settings
Determine the secure connection types for each external server (SSL or StartTLS). Determine authentication methods for external servers such as simple, or external (SASL mechanisms). If synchronizing passwords, encoded or especially for clear-text, the connection should be secure. If synchronizing to or from a Microsoft Active Directory system, establish an SSL or StartTLS connection to PingDirectory Server. Configuring password encryption should also be enabled for synchronization from Active Directory, or when synchronizing clear-text passwords.
