So I have an application built in SharePoint Foundation 2010. Until now the application users, were Windows users. But suddenly the necessity for a LDAP authentication arose.

Since I have the application configured with windows users and windows authentication, I was told that the best way to accomplish this was to make a connection to an active directory and configure the LDAP on it.

I have few, to no knowledge of how active directory works.

So could you give some tips on how I should configure the AD and how I can connect it's users to my SharePoint application?

Also if you could also give some tips on how to configure LDAP on the AD I would appreciate it.
