Cached Credentials

You can use cached credentials for any or all of the following:

  • User authentication

    This option is relevant only if users log into the server without using their Windows credentials (for example using public key authentication). Cached credentials provide these users with access to remote resources using their own Windows credentials. Without using cached credentials, users who log in with public key authentication have access to folders on local drives, but don't have access to network resources. For more information, see Record and Use Cached Credentials.

  • Mapped drives and SFTP accessible directories

    This option allows you to provide access to mapped drives and file transfer directories that wouldn't be available to a user based on that user's own Windows account privileges.

  • Domain access

    This option allows you to specify a Windows account that the server can use when it queries Windows Active Directory for user attributes and group membership. For more information, see Domain Access Pane.
