Supported network connections

This page is for Directory Sync. If you’re using Google Cloud Directory Sync (GCDS), go to GCDS. Directory Sync is currently in public beta.

Before you begin with Directory Sync, you must ensure that the network connection is available between Google Cloud and your LDAP server. Below is detail about the network connections we support for Directory Sync.

Option 1: LDAP server hosted in Google Cloud

In this scenario, the LDAP directory is hosted in Google Cloud. You create a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) access connector to allow Directory Sync to communicate with the LDAP server. To connect the LDAP server, you must have access to the Google Cloud project where the LDAP directory is hosted.

Option 2: LDAP server hosted outside of Google Cloud

If your LDAP server is hosted in a non-Google Cloud environment (for example, on-premises), you can use Google Cloud VPN or Cloud Interconnect to set up your connection.

In both scenarios, you must have access to the Google Cloud project. You must also create a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) access connector to allow Directory Sync to communicate with the Google Cloud project.
