2.4 Optional Connections to External Systems

  • Connection to a server running Windows 2012R2, 2016, 2019 Active Directory (via LDAP protocol): It is possible to run the EPC Server on a network without Active Directory. Without a connection to Active Directory, you will not be able to import users. Instead, you will have to create them individually using the EPC System Administration interface or use Just-In-Time User Creation Feature.
  • Connection to a SMTP server: It is possible to run the EPC Server on a network without a connection to an e-mail server. Without such a connection, EPC password and subscription notification will not be available, and you will be unable to e-mail Discussion Forum messages.

EPC Server supports non-authenticated connections or connections authenticated with a basic authentication type to SMTP Server.
