Authentication settings

If you are connecting to a networked computer, in most cases you will need to provide the necessary credentials for accessing the network share.

If you need to specify the user name and password:

  • Clear the Use NT authentication check box and enter the logon credentials:
    • User name – enter a user name
    • Password – enter the user’s password

When you click the Test connection button, the computer will try to connect to the selected network share. If you receive an error message, check if the credentials are correct and provide the correct user name and password for the selected network share. To repeat the connection attempt, click the Test again button.

If you select the Use NT authentication check box, the computer will try to log on automatically with the credentials used for logging on to Windows.

Having provided the required information, click Connect.
