This article covers the interaction between the client and Syncplify.me Server! in case of Active Directory authentication, and explains how auth-data sent by the client is interpreted by the server.
For the sake of our example we have set up a Windows Server 2012 R2 virtual machine, and created the “syncplify.local” domain (totally made up, you can use your own domain name of course). We have then created an AD group called “SFTP Users” (again you can create your own groups) and a couple users: “testuser” and “groupuser”. The testuser profile is only member of the “Domain Users” group, while the groupuser profile is member of “Domain Users” as well as of “SFTP Users”.
Important: if you’re using Syncplify.me Server! v4.0 or greater, please make sure you also carefully read this article before you continue.
Then we have created the two virtual profiles in Syncplify.me Server! with the usernames exactly as you see them in the picture here below:
