Hi All, I have been working with PTC on this issue and even thou they have been quite helpful I still cant get this thing to work. I have implemented the ad connector before on other systems but for some reason this one just wont work. Here is the problem. I run through steps outlined in "Title How to Configure Windchill with Active Directory " located on PTC web. It seems to work fine don't have any problems until I need to log on. I have configured the password file and checked that it works it does. I also found that if the authentication ldap url is incorrect (not set up correctly) then I can authenticate using the normal method. Once I am in I can retrieve the users located on the AD (this to me means that the Windchill part is working correctly.) So using by means of deduction I have come to the conclusion that the problem lies within apache. ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated. Regards, Bryan

We had some problems too with the authentication of apache with an Active Directory. One of the things that was a little bit confussing was about the port to connect to the Active Directory. The dafault port is 389 but depending which version of Active Directory are you trying to authenticate, this port may not work with Apache, so we got it working specifying port 3268 (Global Directory Catalog).
So, the app-Windchill.properties file that we were using to do it, was someting like this:
