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 on the Information Technology in Liberal Arts page.
