Connect to LAN as

When updating from a local server running Windows, authentication for each network connection is required by default. Configuration options are located in the Advanced setup tree (F5) under Update > Profiles > Connect to LAN as. To configure your account, select one of the following options from the Local user type drop-down menu:

System account (default) - 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.

Current user - select this to ensure that the program authenticates using the currently logged-in user account. 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.

Specified user - select this 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.

note_icon_warning WARNING

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.

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