Installing InfoRouter LDAP Authentication on Windows 2008

[Inforouter] Installing InfoRouter LDAP Authentication on Windows 2008

The InfoRouter LDAP authentication runs as a web service on any domain PC. It is common however to install it on the server where InfoRouter is installed.

In the [drive]\InfoRouter\ProgramSetups\LDAP Authentication Web Service\ folder is a PDF file called ‘infoRouter_LDAP_Authentication.pdf’. This document details how the website/virtual directory is created using the contents of the above folder.

On page 3 of the document there is the line shown below;

3. Give the website or virtual directory a name like “IRAuthenticationSrv ”

If you chose the ‘virtual directory’ option you may find that you cannot access the web service http://<servername>/<irauthenticationserviceVirtualDir>/irAuthenticationSrv.asmx

If you go to IIS 7.0 and expand the ‘Default Web Site’ tree locate the ‘Virtual Directory’ and right click then select the ‘Convert to Application’ option. You should now be able to access the web service. (JHO)
