Adding a User

To add a new Connect:Direct® user from Connect:Direct Requester:

  1. If more than one local node is configured, on the Nodes tab of the Control Pad, highlight the local node to which the user is to be added.
  2. Select Node > Connection Settings > Edit Userids.
  3. Click Insert.
  4. Type information in the following fields:
    • Name—Type the name of the new user. Either type the user name as defined in the Microsoft Windows setup, such as "cduser", or type a user name in the UPN format, such as "" for ActiveDirectory or "cduser@mydomain" for a domain.
    • Password—Type the password defined for the user.
    • Verify Password—Retype the password defined for the user.
  5. Click Remember Password to automatically reload the password when you attach as this user.
  6. Click Set as the Default User if you want the new user to be the default user for the node.
  7. Click OK.
  8. If the verification password you typed does not match the initial password, you receive a message indicating the passwords do not match when you click OK. Retype the verification password and click OK.
  9. Click OK on the User Properties window to save the settings, then click Close.
    Attention: Changes made to node settings are not written to the Registry until you select OK.
