Are you trying to set up External Authentication for your end users to connect or register your FMS with the LDAP domain controller?
I am thinking those two would go hand in hand. I am assuming, though, that if I want to use domain passwords (which I do), I need to register the FMS with the domain controller (Windows Server 2003).
Okay, I had a bad distinguished name; now my FM10 Server is published in Active Directory. However, when I click Open Remote, the server does not appear. In fact, the sever is on the local subnet and it doesn't show up in Local Hosts either. Anyone?
Well it not showing up under local hosts is probably an isolated incident. Do you have Bonjour installed? Bonjour is needed for it to properly indentify what else is on the fmnet network.
Will it work when you specify the IP itself as a favorite?
As for your actual issue with External Authentication ( not specifying the directory server under the FMS configuration ), you have created accounts with the EXACT group name as you have setup as your AD group correct? Also you have the acount to be setup to authenitcate with the external server as well as setup the server setting under the security tab to authenticate FileMaker accounts as well as external server accounts correct?
