These instructions provide the basic configuration information for clients used within the Penn State community.
Please note that these instructions are provided as a guideline. If you update your e-mail client or Web browser, then the instructions might not follow exactly as they are outlined below. Please read carefully the options presented to you via a particular client/application before taking the recommended steps. In some cases, the steps outlined might be similar to how a client/application should be configured but not identical.
In any case, the following configurations apply for every LDAP client:
- LDAP server: ldap.psu.edu
- Search base: dc=psu,dc=edu
- Scope: subtree
- Port number: 389 (this number is usually set by default)
- SSL/TLS: None/off
- Authentication: None
For specific configuration instructions for Outlook 2007 and 2013 (instructions work for both), please see Configuring Outlook 2007 for Penn State’s LDAP Directory
