Displaying the StarLeaf directory on H.323 endpoints
Installing H.323 endpointsLast updated March 3, 2017
StarLeaf customers who have H.323 endpoints registered to the StarLeaf Cloud can configure those endpoints to display their StarLeaf organization’s directory. The directory displays the organization’s room systems and users, along with any other entries from the Directory entries tab of the StarLeaf Portal. Polycom and Lifesize endpoints connect to the StarLeaf directory using LDAP. Cisco/Tandberg endpoints connect to the StarLeaf directory using HTTP or HTTPS.
If you would like your H.323 endpoints to display your StarLeaf organization’s directory, contact StarLeaf technical support.
When setting up a third-party H.323 endpoint to display your StarLeaf organization’s directory, you can refer to example LDAP and HTTP/HTTPS configurations in the following vendor-specific articles: Polycom Group, Polycom HDX, Lifesize Passport and Team, Lifesize Icon, and Cisco EX90, MXP, SX20, and C Series.
To connect to the StarLeaf directory you need to have access to the following host:
directory.starleaf.com – this server provides the directory details
Endpoints that connect to the directory using LDAP require TCP ports 389 or 636 (see below). Endpoints that connect to the directory using HTTP and HTTPS require TCP ports 80 and 443. If your firewall whitelists outbound connections, you need to add those addresses and ports to that whitelist. It is not necessary to open up any ports for inbound connections.
Configuring LDAP endpoints to display the directory
These instructions work for any endpoint that supports retrieving directory information via LDAP. Navigate to the web interface of your endpoint, where the following configuration allows this endpoint to use the StarLeaf directory server.
Server Type: LDAP
Server Address: directory.starleaf.com
Server Port: 389 or 636 (endpoint dependent)
Base DN: o=<organization>,dc=starleaf,dc=com
Authentication type: Basic
Use SSL/TLS: True
Bind DN: o=<organization>,dc=starleaf,dc=com
The server port is 389 (Polycom endpoints) or 636 (Lifesize endpoints).
The <organization> matches your StarLeaf organization’s H.323/SIP subdomain as found on the Edit organization page on the StarLeaf Portal. The password is provided by StarLeaf support.
