It's the first time i use Designer on my Windows PC. The vault test connection to my LDAP is KO. The telnet to the LDAP port 389 is OK, but when i initiate the vault test connection i see the java process starting on TCPview software.
javaw.exe 3424 TCP my PC 51418 LDAPserver 524 SYN_SENT
i have configured the remote LDAP port at 389 in designer but the java process use 524 i don't understand why ?
Designer is tool that, currently, uses NCP for communication with the vault. A version that uses LDAP is pending and should do great things for performance, but at least today that is not an option. The presence of LDAP settings within Designer is mostly for documentation at this point, I believe. The connection settings within the properties of the Identity Vault object (big grey box in the Modeler view) are what you are after to configure the IP/DNS and NCP port, should those ever change..
-- Good luck.

I'm pretty sure Designer already uses high ports as it acts as client to eDirectory, which is serving on 524. On the server side you could probably change the port with ndsconfig get/set, but I would be surprised if that was a good idea. What you need to allow on your firewall is
Designer: (random high ports) --> Edir server: 389, 524 and 636 (some comms are already using LDAP right now...)
Hello, eDirectory NCP port = 1025 Designer initiate a NCP request to eDirectory. The default destination port in this request is 524. i have appended the : port to the Host field but Designer reject this setup

Which Designer version is that? And are you using the host field in ID Vault properties (which is where I tried it) or the one on the server object in Designer (which does not get used for connections at all, just for documentation).
If I use e.g. 126.96.36.199:555 as host in ID Vault properties and hit "Test connection", I get an error, if I use 188.8.131.52:524 and hit the button again it works, exactly as if I leave out the :524 altogether (I do not have Edir on non standard port, so cannot test your setup).
Or does the "test connection" work, but a subsequent compare/deploy/restart driver etc. operation fails?

This works for me on both 18.104.22.168 (Win) and 4.0.2 AU5 (Linux), btw.

Right click on the Vault object. Go to Properties. In the host field, you put ipaddress:port for the vault. Works fine here, I have one on ipaddress:1524 and no problems with it.
