SonicWall OpenDirectory User Authentication
I answered a message on the OS X Server Administrator's list regarding how to set up a SonicWall Pro Series appliance to authenticate users against OpenDirectory. I promptly started receiving more questions directly from people trying to accomplish the same thing. Since not all lists are attachment-friendly, here are snapshots of the settings I'm using in one case. Please note that a) this could be more secure, and b) I've redacted where necessary.
Step 1: Log into the firewall and choose the "Users" tab in the nav bar. You should see a dropdown menu with authentication options.

Step 2: Choose "LDAP + Local Users" and then click the "Configure..." button.
Step 3: Match up your settings as necessary:

Move onto the "Schema" tab:

Then, move onto the actual LDAP configuration. Clearly, this needs to match up to your configuration on the OS X Server side, which can be checked in Server Admin.app utility:

The remaining tabs are really situation dependent, so, I won't cover them here. The above information should be enough for a successful "test" on the "Test" tab. In figure 4, by the way, I'm not using groups, so, there's a bit of a bogus value in there.
Questions? Post 'em and I'll see what I can do.
