Why am I seeing "LDAP bind failed to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx: -1 Can't contact LDAP server" in my EZproxy messages.txt file

Symptom
  • "LDAP bind failed to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx: -1 Can't contact LDAP server" is showing up in the message.txt file and users are unable to login
Applies to
  • EZproxy using LDAP authentication
Resolution

Contact your local IT department and tell them they need to allow EZproxy to contact the LDAP server at IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Additional information

The issue occurs when the rules that allow EZproxy to contact the LDAP server in the local computer network are not present or have been removed.
