User Access Control Dialog Box

Getting there

From this dialog box, you can add users to your allow or deny list. For additional information, including examples, see Controlling Access by User.

The options are:

User name(s)

Enter a user name, or a regular expression that can match multiple users. You can specify just a user name, or include a client host or domain information. To include a client host with the user name, use the format user@host.

To specify a Windows Active Directory domain, use either a single forward slash or two backward slashes between the domain name and the user name. The following formats are equivalent:


When you omit domain information, the server looks for users defined on the local computer. You can also specify a local user by using the local computer name as the domain name.

To specify a Web Edition user, use Reflection for users in the built-in User Manager directory, or use the domain name of any added LDAP server. To ensure that your user settings work as expected, confirm that the LDAP server domain name you specify here matches the name you specified in User Manager. (Connect to User Manager, click LDAP Server, select your server, click Edit and confirm the value entered for Domain Name.)

Note: User Principal Name (UPN) format is not supported. If you specify "user@host", "host" is always the name of the client computer from which the user connects, not the name of the user's Windows domain.

Allow Connect

Allow access to the specified user(s).

Deny Connect

Deny access to the specified user(s).

Note: You can specify a comma-separated list of users in the User name(s) text box. When you click OK, each user in the list is added as a new line item in your list of configured users.
