MS-Active Directory integration

Pro+ Filter implements granular filter policies based upon Active Directory groups and users.

The solution consists of two components:
» Windows connector
» DNS Proxy

Windows connector setup
It has to be installed into the Microsoft Active Directory Server, with the Administrator account, and it serves to synchronize users and groups with our Datacenters. Here below the guide: Windows Connector Setup.

DNS Proxy Setup
At this point you need to download and configure the DNS Proxy. See the guide below: DNS Proxy Setup and Configuration.

Network DNS configuration
DNS Proxy IP address must be the unique DNS Server for your PCs and WiFi guest devices. It will provide to forward to the internal Windows Domain Controller the Active Directory DNS zones. You can configure DNS settings through a DHCP Server or setup DNS to the clients manually.

See the image below to better understand how it works:  Example image
