    Moodle and LDAP

    Does anyone know if it's possible to link a Moodle install hosted on an external host talk to an LDAP server with in our network?

    We wanting to use Moodle but don't want to open the hole in our firewall.

    Perhaps a way to sync users from the AD into Moodle would be best, shouldn't need to open any holes in our firewall.

    You could use LDAP over SSL, not sure if you would still need to open a port up for that though, as it defends how your firewall is configured.

    We have no control over the firewall and have to request alterations (from the RBC). There very strict on what can and cannot be allowed through. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't allow LDAP.

    LSAP over SSL is secure though, so should be allowed. Neither use the normal ports though, so you would almost definitely need to ask.

    If you are unable to have port 636 opened to a defined IP address, you could look at using something like ssoeasy which would create a indirect link to ldap over port 443.
