1 AD Integration

"AD Integration" enables you to integrate WFilter NG Firewall with microsoft active directory, so you can:

  • Detect AD username of online devices.
  • Set internet access and bandwidth shaper policies based on AD users.
  • Record AD users internet activity.

For example:

  • The real-time bandwidth will show AD username:

  • Choose applied-to users(AD OU & users):

  • Notice:
    • WFilter NG Firewall uses different machanism to retrieve logon domain users when the DC is in external or internal network.
    • When "automatically sync domain users" is enabled, new or deleted domain users will be synced to WFilter.
    • WFilter detects a domain user when it login into the active directory. So you might need to wait sometime to see logon users.
    • The default user entry timeout is 30 hours. If no re-logon happens in 30 hours after last time logon, this username will be timeout.
    • Some programs in the client device will automaticaly logon into the domain with a different AD user. In this case, you can add this user into the "Exception List".
