Add a user account

Add a user account that should be able to access the User Portal and use the VPN connection.

If you want to use an existing account, adopt the required settings from the user configured in the next steps.

  1. Go to Definitions & Users > Users & Groups > Users.

  2. Click New User.

    The Add User dialog shows.

  3. Specify the following settings:

    Username: Enter a username. Example: gforeman. The remote user needs this username later to log in to the User Portal.

    Real name: Enter the full name of the remote user. Example: George Foreman.

    Authentication: For Local authentication, enter a password for the remote user.

    Use static remote access IP: You can’t assign a static IP address to the user. Leave this option deactivated if the user uses remote access through SSL only.

    Comment (optional): You can enter a description or additional information on the user.

  4. Click Save.
