  2. On the “Connection Details” fill in your domain name under “Directory Junction Name”, your domain controller server name under “Server Address” and for none-secure trafic leave the port to 389 or use 686 and “Use SSL” for secure setup. Click on “Test Connection” and ensure the test has completed successfully. Screenshot_13
