How do I implement "Single Sign On" (SSO) ?

Step 1 - Install the SSO package:

Install the PtSSOLogon.msi (the file is located in the Add-Ons folder -server side) on each WebConnect user`s machine - compatible with Windows XP. This can be done using Group Policy if you are in a Windows Domain, or by other 3rd party distribution utility, or even manually.

Step 2 - Modify the HTML Page(s):

1. On your WebServer/WebConnect server browse to C:\Program Files\Ericom Software\WebConnect 5.6\web\windows.

2. Open Agent_X, and modify the line that starts <PARAM NAME= and include the parameter /USER=## , also set AUTOLOGIN to YES.

For Example:


Each user will need to hit the URL again in order to configure WebConnect client.

Alternatively you can modify existing desktop shortcuts manually by editing the target line to include the /USER=## parameter.

For example:

"C:\Program Files\Ericom Software\PowerTerm WebConnect 5.6\MyServer1\ptagent.exe" MyServer1 /USER=## /SHORTCUT=BOTH /AUTOLOGIN=YES
