Configuring user authentication

The eLux package User authentication modules must be installed on the devices.This may require modifications of the image definition file on the web server via ELIAS.

  1. In the device configuration, under Security > User authentication, choose from the following authentication methods.

    None Disables user authentication
    Active Directory Active Directory (Microsoft directory service)
    AD + smart card Smart card with Active Directory
    Evidian1 Identity and access management via RFID or smart card

    On the eLux RP 6 client, under Security > User authentication, enable user authentication.Then under Authentication type, choose the method.

  2. Click Edit.

  3. On the AD directory tab, specify the server, server list or domains to which users may log on.
    Define multiple entries, if you want to create a selection for users when they log on.

    For Evidian, on the Evidian server tab, specify a server or server list.

  4. To help users log on quickly, select the Show last user option.

  5. Only for AD: In the Domain field list, choose whether you want to show users the specified domain so they can edit it, or whether you want to hide it.
  6. Confirm with OK..

After you have enabled user authentication, the users will be prompted for their username and password after the next device restart.
The screen saver is automatically protected by password.

To devices that are not managed by Scout, administrators may log on with the LocalLogin username and device password to correct any settings, if required.
