Connecting to LAN


When either the option Current user or Specified user is enabled, an error may occur when changing the identity of the program to the desired user. This is why we recommend inserting 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 the user’s password. When updating from the HTTP version of the local server, no authentication is required.

When updating from a local server with an NT-based operating system running, authentication for each network connection is required by default. In most cases, a local system account doesn’t have sufficient access rights for the mirror folder (containing copies of update files). If this is the case, enter the user name and password in the update setup section, or specify an account under which the program will enter the update server – mirror.
To configure such an account, switch to the LAN tab.  The section Connect to LAN as offers the options System account (default), Current user, and Specified user.

Select the System account option to use the system account for authentication. Normally, no authentication process takes place if there are no authentication data supplied in the main update setup section.
To ensure that the program authorizes itself 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.

The default option for LAN connection is System account.
