Access Password


The Access Password features allows you to configure different passwords and administrative rights of ISL AlwaysOn for different users.

When connecting to remote computer, you can use next password types:

  • Global Password is an access password which is defined during installation, and can be used to connect to remote computer by any user/connection.
  • Password for this connection / remote user password can be set manually in the ISL AlwaysOn settings, each user/connection can have a separate password.
  • One Time Password(s) can be set manually in the ISL AlwaysOn settings. A generated list of one-time passwords which can be used only once to connect to remote computer.

Note: By default the ISL AlwaysOn settings are NOT locked. To lock the ISL AlwaysOn settings (and make it only accessible by the global password), the user needs to enable that particular setting - Protect computer configuration with global password. This way (not admin) users who will use "Password for this connection / remote user password" can NOT change ISL AlwaysOn settings.
