LDAP Connection Profiles

LDAP Connection Profiles can be used to save the configuration for an LDAP connection to disk, so that you can use them to connect quickly to the same LDAP server with the same settings very quickly.

If you use LDAP Connection Profiles, you even can be connected automatically to the last used connection when the application is launched.

You can control such profiles in the LDAP Connection dialog. Whenever you have valid connection settings on the configuration panel in this dialog, you can save them to disk with a Connection Profile Name. The list on the left shows you all the LDAP connections which are currently exist in your connection profile path:

LDAP Profiles

Please note that the connection information is stored on your hard disk as a Rijndael encrypted file (AES Advanced Encryption Standard) in your Profile and Filter Storage Path. So if a user password is contained in the profile, it is very well protected against disclosure.

If you select one profile entry in the list, the settings of this connection profile is shown in the configuration panel on the right side of the dialog. You could also directly double-click on one entry to establish the regarding connection.

You can use the F2 button if you want to rename the LDAP connection profiles in the List. With the Delete button, the connection profile is removed from the list and the according file is deleted from your file system.

You can use the New button or the New connection entry on the top of the profile list to configure a new connection - to save this connection settings to disk, just use the Save button:
