Configuring an NTLM authentication server
You can use a NTLM authentication server to authenticate user login to destination server.
Before you begin:
- You must know the IP address, port, used to access the NTLM server.
- You must have Read-Write permission for User settings.
- Configure a connection to an NTLM server that can authenticate user login.
- Select the NTLM server configuration when you add users or user groups.
To create a NTLM server configuration:
1. Go to User Authentication > Remote Server.
2. Select the NTLM Server tab.
3. Click Create New to display the configuration editor.
4. Complete the configuration as described below.
5. Save the configuration.
Specify a unique name for the NTLM server configuration. Valid characters are A-Z, a-z, 0- 9, _, and -. No spaces allowed.
After you save the configuration, you cannot edit the name.
|Server||IP address of the remote NTLM server.|
|Port||The listening port of the NTLM server. The commonly used port for an NTLM server is 445.|
After configuring an NTLM server, configure a user group and add a member of NTLM type. This makes it possible for related authentication policy and virtual server to work under NTLM authentication.
Note: For user groups with “Client Authentication Method” set to “NTLM”, only allow use of an NTLM server as member; for “Client Authentication Method” set to “HTML form” and “HTTP”, use “NTLM server” is also allowed. Only NTLM version 1 is supported.
