Login via Windows Authentication
Apart from the normal login with the Across user name, the login to Across can also take place via the Windows user account in the Active Directory. Thus, manual login is no longer necessary, as the user is authenticated via the Windows user administration. To use the Windows authentication, the user must be configured accordingly.
After starting Across, the softkey of the user with Windows authentication needs to be imported once in the login dialog, using the respective button.
The field already contains the user name. A password does not need to be entered in order to log in to Across, as the user is authenticated via the Windows user administration. Thus, the input field for the password is grayed out. The login to Across takes place once using the Login button.
Thereafter, the login to Across will take place automatically whenever Across is started, and the login dialog will no longer be displayed – provided that only the user with Windows authentication is registered and no other Across user is registered in the login dialog.
To log in to Across with Windows authentication, the Windows user for whom Windows authentication is configured in Across must currently be logged on to Windows.
