Configuring Access to Management Tools

Secure Environments

Disable the AWI and use the PCoIP Manamgement Console to configure endpoints in environments that have high security requirements.

Setting Default AWI OSD Management Console
Disable Management Console Interface Disabled
Disable Administrative Web Interface Disabled
Force password change on next login Disabled

From the OSD and AWI, you can:

  • Prevent a PCoIP management tool from managing the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client.
  • Disable administrative access to the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client’s AWI.
  • Force an administrative password change the next time someone accesses the AWI or OSD.

At least one of the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client's three management configuration interfaces (OSD, AWI, or PCoIP Management Console) must remain enabled at all times. If you hide the OSD Configuration menu, you will receive an error message if you try to disable both the PCoIP Management Console interface and the AWI.

Failed login attempt warning

A warning message displays if any failed access attempts to the AWI or OSD were detected since the last successful login. The message provides the date and time of the failed attempt, as shown next.

To configure access settings:

  1. Open the Access page:

    • From the OSD, select Options > Configuration > Access.

    • From the AWI, select Configuration > Access.

  2. From the OSD or AWI Access page, select one of the access settings:

    • Disable Management Console Interface: When enabled, the management console interface is disabled, and the PCoIP Management Console (or any other PCoIP device management tool) can't access or manage the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client.

    • Disable Administrative Web Interface: When enabled, you can't access or manage the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client using the AWI.

    • Force password change on next login: When enabled, the administrative password must be changed the next time either the AWI or OSD is accessed. The new password may be blank.

  3. To save your updates, click OK from the OSD, or click Apply from the AWI.
