LDAP Settings

Configure LDAP/AD settings for inbound routing number lookup.

The LDAP Settings can be used to automatically route faxes to email inboxes using your LDAP or Active Directory service. As each new fax arrives, the inbound telephone number is used to query your directory service for a match. If a matching number is found, the fax is automatically emailed to the associated email address.

By default, the attribute facsimileTelephoneNumber is used for the query but may be overridden in the custom attributes shown below. Similarly, the mail attribute may be configured to math your directory.

Routing Logic

  • The number of inbound routing digits is used to filter the number search (matching the ending portion of the facsimile number).
  • Inbound numbers that have a defined Route override the default LDAP routing behavior.
