Use this form to configure perimeter network settings for external users who are stored in Active Directory Domain Services. The settings on this form only apply when a perimeter network is configured and external user accounts are stored in Active Directory.

NoteNote

If you do not want to store external user accounts in Active Directory, but you do want to enable external users to access Enterprise Portal, you must use Microsoft Dynamics AX Flexible Authentication. For information, see Deploy an Enterprise Portal site that uses forms-based authentication.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
