The Management > Sophos Mobile Control > General tab allows you to define the Sophos Mobile Control host and specify customer details and credentials for logging into the SMC Server. The SMC administrator creates customer accounts and login data.

Note – You cannot create a SMC server on this tab. More information about creating a SMC server can be found in the Sophos Mobile Control Documentation.

    Customer: Enter the SMC customer.
