Setup on external hosting

Setting up Adauth on an externally hosted rails app is very easy but meeting the requirements may take some work.


  • The IP of your internet connection. (Could also be a DNS record that points to the connection your DC is on)
    • If you have a dynamic IP address you can use a service like dynDNS to provide a dns name
  • A port forwarded to 389 on any of your DCs
    • The external port does not have to be 389, it can be anything you want as long as your firewall shifts the traffic onto 389.

Configuring Adauth

The only variables that need changing from the standard setup are the server and port. Once they have been set correctly Adauth will function no problem and work just the same as if it was on the same network.
