Pass-through Authentication

Maybe I don't understand this feature (using Internet-ID):

Host Side:

Security --> Windows NT --> Add special GROUP from the LOCAL machine named EVERYONE, this includes all users locally & domain users if the machine is joined to a domain (which it is).

Give the EVERYONE group full control

Viewer:

1. Add a host to the viewer.
2. Properties --> Security --> Add a Password & "Send User Name"
3. Login and I'm prompted for the user/pass.

What are these fields for? Do they pass any information?

A then added the local machines "Users" group to security and no difference.

I'm trying to achieve the ability to just click on a machine without being prompted every time for a user/password.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for your questions.

Autosaving usernames and passwords doesn't work for Windows Security yet. Only for Remote Utilities Security. More about authorization.

So the connection properties fields that you mentioned work only if RU Security is chosen on the Host side.

Can this be added to the suggestion list? The ability to pass the NT password to a host for auto-login; it would save those who are on domains a lot time!

thanks.

Hello Michael,

This is already on our roadmap. We'll try to fit this into one of our upcoming updates.
