It depends...

Start with some initial research:

1) What kind of API does your LDAP vendor provide?
2) Do you need a real-time interface, batch interface, or something in between?

Ummm....

This may sound silly, so forgive me... but are you referring to the Authentication method called LDAP (Active Directory) ?

An "LDAP" server is a host that uses active directory to be used for authenticating users.


Are you referring to any other type of LDAP acronym?


To log in to an "LDAP" server you need a user id and password, optionally you can use SSH keys for password-less secure connections.

To transfer data from one host to another, you need to either FTP/SFTP the files, SCP the files or connect to a database and extract the data.
