On-Prem: Integrate a reverse proxy before an AD/LDAP server

  • This article only concerns On-Premises customers.
  • Integrating a reverse proxy server represents a "customization". This means that we’re unable to provide you with support in the event of a problem.

You can integrate the reverse proxy server in just two short steps. Open the console on your computer and execute the following commands. 

Step 1:

Install nginx on your server.

add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/stable
apt-get update
apt-get install nginx

Step 2:

Customize the nginx configuration.

stream {
    server {
        listen     <ldap_port>;
        #TCP traffic will be forwarded to the specified server
        proxy_pass <AD/LDAP IP/Domain>:<ldap_port>;
It's also possible for you to integrate an officially signed certificate into the proxy and operate the AD server with a self-signed certificate.
