Just a quick reminder that this guide, “Login To Pfsense Using Active Directory Accounts”, does not show us how to authenticate against a squid proxy server using active directory accounts. Rather, it explains how to log into the web configurator graphical user interface for pfsense router using active directory accounts.
Like always, this is going to be a practical hands off guide.
Recently, we had a need in a small company that employs pfsense router and Microsoft active directory, to allow some users who are part of an active directory group access to log into the pfsense server. To make this work, we had to configure our Microsoft active directory server with the names of these users and then configure pfsense to allow them login to the web Gui.
