We need to use LDAPS (port 636) instead of LDAP (port 389) for Active Directory authentication for DCO, DCE and Portal. Port 389 is considered less secure and our Security team may have an issue with it.
Can you advise if we can use port 636 instead?

Hi Lai Yuan,
Yes, you can use port 636 for your authentication server settings, make sure you have enabled "Use encryption" option:

For DCE, you can change ports as well. Here's the configuration screen and the little help comment about it:

We got DCO integration with AD on LDAPS port 636 working fine, but not DCE.
LDAPS works with certificate issued from AD server. In DCO, we accepted the AD certificate while configuration. With DCE (Desktop Client), we never got that prompt? Please help.
