Moodle IIS/ Internal / External access issues please help :)
I am starting to pull my hair out with moodle, I originally installed it using xammp but was recommended not to use this as its not as secure. I then looked at wamp.
Currently I am using the Microsoft web app gallery which installed moodle quickly and is working.
issue 1 - When I setup moodle I entered the server name of: http://172.16.8.35
I can access this internally without any issues, externally is another matter!!!!
I have setup a public facing IP address, my smoothwall is configured to redirect tot he ip address of the server I get the following error through external access:
incorrect access detected, this server may be accessed only through "htpp://172.16.8.35/moodle" address, sorry. Please notify server administrator
So the external address is working but how do I get this to work?? is there some code anyone can help me with in the config file? or suggest how I should set the moodle up on first install
issue 2- ldaplink just doesn't work
I created a new ou called moodle, created a user account ldaplink
distinguished name: cn=ldaplink,ou=moodle,dc=domain,dc=school,dc=local
User Type and select ‘MS Active Directory’
The Search Subcontexts needs to be set to Yes.
The User attribute needs this to be entered: sAMAccountName
Scroll down to Cron Synchronisation Script.
The Removed ext user needs to be set to Suspend interval.
Scroll down a bit further, to Data Mapping. Here, use these values:
First name: givenName
Scroll down to and click Save Changes.
try to log in with the active directory user account but it errors and says it cannot find the server
I would be most grateful for any assistance as I need to get this setup a.s.a.p.
Does anyone else use the Microsoft way of doing this?
