General information #
The LDAP address book is available to all employees under the following generic connection data. Specific instructions can be found later in this article.
Configuration in Outlook #
Open Outlook and go to “File” and then to “Account Settings”, “Account Settings”
Then the following window opens:
Click on “New” and another window will open.
Now just click on “Next”.
Please enter the following:
- Server name: “addressbook.uni-ak.ac.at”
- Check “Server requires registration”
- “email@example.com” and your associated password.
Select “Require secure password authentication (SPA)”.
(If you have problems setting up, please try logging in WITHOUT “Secure Password Authentication (SPA) required”.)
After that it should look like this:
Now click on the “Additional Settings” button, a window will open again.
Please enter “addressbook.uni-ak.ac.at” under “Display name as it appears in the address book”. Under “Connection Details”, change the port to “636” and select the “Use Secure Sockets Layer” box.
Click the “Search” tab.
Select “User-defined” and copy the following information into the input field next to it:
Click “Apply” and then click “OK”. You should now have this window in front of you again.
ATTENTION: If you have problems with the setup, remove the checkmark next to “Secure password authentication (SPA) required“.
Click “Next” again
Select “Finish” in this window
Now you should see this window and thus also see “addressbook.uni-ak.ac.at“.
Configuration in Thunderbird #
Open Thunderbird and click on the “3 slashes” at the top right -> Settings -> Settings -> Compose -> Addressing
Make a checkmark at “LDAP directory server” and click on “Edit”
A new window is opening up. Click on “Add”.
Please enter the following data:
- Name: UNI-AK (You can freely choose a name for the online address book.)
- Server address: addressbook.uni-ak.ac.at
- Base DN: OU=Kontakte,OU=4Dmanaged,OU=UNI-AK,DC=ad,DC=uni-ak,DC=ac,DC=at
- Bind-DN: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Activate “Use encrypted connection (SSL)“, this automatically sets the correct port number to “636“.
Now click on “OK”.
Also click OK in the LDAP Directory Server window
Now open the address book.
If you have now selected “UNI-AK” in the left column and are looking for a name in the search bar at the top right, Thunderbird asks you for your p-number password, enter it.
Please activate “Use the password manager to save this password”, otherwise you will be asked for your password every time you enter it.
Now click on OK”.
You will now see the results.
With one click on the contact, all information about this is displayed!
