Cerberus FTP Server
Cerberus FTP Server can help administrators manage user accounts from three different sources.
Native User Accounts
The default Cerberus FTP Server user database, also referred to as Cerberus native user accounts, is displayed in the User List box on the Users page of the User Manager. With Cerberus native user accounts created just for Cerberus FTP Server, administrators can manage them through the Cerberus desktop admin console or through web administration.
Active Directory User Accounts
LDAP User Account Directory
Active Directory User Accounts
Cerberus FTP Server can be used to authenticate Active Directory users when the machine hosting Cerberus is part of a domain (or the local NT account database), even if the computer Cerberus FTP Server is installed on is not the domain controller. See the page Active Directory Authentication for more information on how to configure Cerberus to allow authentication of Active Directory domain users.
LDAP User Account Sources
Users can also be authenticated against an LDAP service. See the section on configuring Cerberus for LDAP authentication for more information.
NOTE: Active Directory and LDAP authentication are only available in the Professional and Enterprise editions of Cerberus FTP Server.
