This product includes Management & Control Services (MCS), a Web-based server console that administrators can use to centrally manage and configure Attachmate management components, such as Presentation Manager and Application Manager.
The primary purposes of MCS are to provide a common interface for securely deploying presentations to users, a central repository for storing custom applications and presentations, and management tools for monitoring and reporting how custom applications are being used.
Following is a list of the services that MCS provides:
Authentication Specify the level of user authentication required to access the MCS console and write data to MCS. User authentication for accessing presentations is provided separately.
Rights Management Specify which members of the directory listing can access and use the MCS console.
Directory Services Manage MCS users and groups using the internal MCS directory service, or incorporate a user and group list maintained in an external directory service.
Security Services Make use of a secure port that implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 3.0 and Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0. This includes authenticated and encrypted sessions between the server and clients.
To get started with MCS, access the MCS console and configure your directory service, and then secure it by setting your authentication and rights options. Now, you're ready to start deploying presentations to users.
