Brosix LDAP Synchronization Tool
This tool needs access from the Internet to your Brosix data. To provide high level of security there are some steps that have to be performed before you can use the directory sync tool:
- NET API is not enabled by default. Please go to the Web Control Panel – Settings – Options tab and enable it. Web Control Panel is available at https://net.brosix.com/
- Access to NET API is restricted to a limited number of IP addresses. Once NET API is activated for your IM network, please specify the IP addresses that are allowed to use NET API
- Provide a “Secret key”. It is used to authorize access to your NET API.
Once the NET API is enabled and configured the process of syncing is very easy. The sync tool can be used in two modes:
- Standard – opens a GUI wizard that guides you through the steps
- Command line – all the options are available in command line mode. You can set up a Scheduled Task and synchronize your Active Directory with Brosix every day.
NOTE: For security reasons Brosix active directory sync tool does NOT export user passwords from your Active Directory sync tool. This means your users’ passwords for their Active Directory accounts are secured.
This also means that your user accounts on Brosix will have different passwords. For your convenience, Brosix LDAP Sync tool can automatically create a password for every user account it creates and sends the user an e-mail with the Brosix account credentials. The user can change the password at any time.

Corporate Chat Installation
Brosix setup package for Windows has special options for corporate use.
Brosix Advanced Setup – for cases when several people share one Windows computer.
Brosix Network Install – for teams or groups, that place Brosix on a network share and all users start it from there.
Brosix Advanced Setup
Default Brosix Setup installs Brosix in Windows’s user home folder. This is done to allow installation for users that have no administrator rights on their Windows machines.
However, in a corporate environment it is common practice several users to share a Windows machine.
For example Windows in Citrix, Windows via Remote Desktop Connection or Windows Terminal Services. In these cases it is preferred to install Brosix in one common place and all Windows users use Brosix from there. This is achieved with Brosix Advanced Setup.
Brosix Advanced Setup runs in administrator mode on the Windows machine. It installs Brosix in “Program Files”. During the installation you have an option to change the installation folder.
Windows user accounts can have limited access rights. They will still be able to use the common Brosix installation but will not be able to update this installation when there is a new Brosix version available. To allow automatic updates, Brosix Advanced Setup installs a special service, that will update Brosix when a new version is available even if all users have limited access rights.
This eliminates the need of system administration for Brosix in a corporate environment.

Brosix Network Install
Brosix Network Setup is intended for teams or groups, that place Brosix on a network share and all users start it from there. Each user configuration and data will be stored on his local computer.
The network share should have Read-Only visibility in the network.
