When syncing between Active Directory forests, the primary connectivity requirement is contact between the target directories over the LDAP port(s). This may require the ports be open on any firewalls in between the directories.

Your UnitySync connection has a ‘Test’ button on the Source and Destination tabs. This will verify LDAP connectivity as well as username/password authentication.

If you want to test LDAP connectivity outside UnitySync, you may run the following test from the command line of your UnitySync server (specify both the target IP and port to test):

telnet port

Error: If an error is returned, connectivity to the specified IP/Port is unavailable. Verify the IP is correct and that the specified port is available.

OK: If an empty black screen results, the connection was successfully established. Successful LDAP connectivity has been confirmed. Press Ctrl-C to end the session.
