I don't have all your answers for you, because that really depends on 
your installation:

LDAP host, I suspect that should be localhost, anyway, it is the FQDN of 
the host.

LDAP base, probably you have to add ou=Users, so ou=Users,dc=domain,dc=tld

LDAP bind is a user, for example cn=root,dc=domain,dc=tld

LDAP main filter is in my case 'sAMAccountName'

and indeed I have 'cn=' for the second filter.
