Options in this dialog box configure settings for device groups.
Add a group on the Groups tab of the Xerox EIP Connect configuration dialog box.
- To add a group, click Add Group on the menu bar. Then, in the Group Settings dialog box, configure options on the General and Authentication tabs.
|Name||Type a name for the group. This name does not appear on the MFP display and it is used strictly for identification purposes.|
|Temporary Repository||Specify the protocol that will be used to connect to temporary repositories:
|Associated MFP Addresses||Enter the IP address or host name for each device that you want to add to the group.
This list must contain at least one
Tip: A network name is usually preferable, because an IP address can change if you are using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
Options on this tab configure authentication settings for devices in a group.
|Requires Authentication||Select this check box to require that MFP devices in this group authenticate users.|
|Use Global Authentication Settings||If authentication has been enabled on the Authentication tab of the Xerox EIP Connect component settings, then you can select this check box to apply the component authentication settings for the group. When this check box is selected, the Authentication Settings options are unavailable.|
|Authentication Settings||Choose the Authentication Type to be used:
|Windows||Windows authentication authenticates users using their Windows domain user name. In
the Domain box,
specify the default domain for authenticating users.
Do not use the fully qualified Domain Name Server (DNS) domain name. Do not use top level domain qualifiers such as .com, .net or .org. For example, if the user is listed as mydomain/user1 or email@example.com, then in a User Principal Name (UPN) format, the domain should be “mydomain” and NOT “mydomain.domain.com”.
Note: If the device is configured to use an Authentication Server with authentication type SMB, then the credentials provided will be used by workflow server. If the authentication type of the device is something other than SMB, then in addition to workflow server login screen, the device authentication screen is also displayed.
|Netware||Specify the NDS Tree and NDS Context for Novell Netware authentication.|
|Custom Script||When Custom is selected for Authentication Type, the administrator defines prompts that are
displayed to the user. An event is sent to the server when a user logs in. The administrator
must provide the .NET plug-in DLL
that responds to the event.
|User Info Lookup||Select the Use LDAP search to retrieve email check box to have the server look up the email address
and other attributes of the authenticated user on a designated LDAP server. Click
the Configure button
to configure the LDAP settings in the LDAP Lookup Settings dialog box.
Note: When Windows authentication is used, the email address is retrieved automatically as part of the authentication and as a result an LDAP search is not required if only the email address is needed.
For information about specifying the LDAP server settings, see LDAP Lookup Settings Dialog Box.
|Query device authentication session for credentials||The behavior determined by this check box depends on the Authentication Type setting:
