On-demand authentication

This is configured under Server > Dual Channel.

Options Yes/No, Default No

Normally a dual channel message is delivered to the user following an authentication, so that they will always have a security string available to them to login. Enabling on-demand authentication disables this behaviour, requiring an explicit request for a message to be sent. The message sent this mode must be used within the session timeout (default 120 seconds see Session Cleanup) to authenticate. On demand authentication will only send one security string at a time.

Methods of making an On Demand Security String request are:

Button in a login page (see below)

As a Taskbar, see Taskbar How to Guide

RADIUS Challenge and Response, see Challenge and Response How to Guide
