Connect to LAN as

When updating from a local server with a version of the Windows NT operating system, authentication for each network connection is required by default.

To configure such an account, select from the Local user type drop-down menu:

System account (default),
Current user,
Specified user.

Select System account (default) to use the system account for authentication. Normally, no authentication process takes place if there is no authentication data supplied in the main update setup section.

To ensure that the program authenticates using a currently logged-in user account, select Current user. The drawback of this solution is that the program is not able to connect to the update server if no user is currently logged in.

Select Specified user if you want the program to use a specific user account for authentication. Use this method when the default system account connection fails. Please be aware that the specified user account must have access to the update files directory on the local server. Otherwise the program will not be able to establish a connection and download updates.


When either Current user or Specified user is selected, an error may occur when changing the identity of the program to the desired user. We recommend entering the LAN authentication data in the main update setup section. In this update setup section, the authentication data should be entered as follows: domain_name\user (if it is a workgroup, enter workgroup_name\name) and password. When updating from the HTTP version of the local server, no authentication is required.

Engage Disconnect from server after update to force a disconnection if a connection to the server remains active even after updates have been downloaded.
