Entering Credentials

Thinfinity VirtualUI allows you to enable one or more authentication methods at a time. There are two possible ways to ask for credentials:

· Using the standard Web Browser authentication dialog

· Showing a log-in page

The Standard Web Browser Authentication (aka Basic Authentication) is, in the context of an HTTP/HTTPS transaction, a method for the HTTP User Agent (the Web Browser) to provide end-user credentials when a request is started. The standard Web Browser authentication dialog is provided by each Web Browser and it looks like this:

This dialog is available when you use only one of the authentication access methods that require user and password: Windows Logon, RADIUS or External DLL.

Also, you can use a login page. The login page provided (login.html) was created to dynamically show all configured authentication methods in your Thinfinity VirtualUI Server. Every login option will be present only if the proper authentication method is configured.

For example, if only the 'Windows Logon' method is configured, the page will look like this:

But if you enable all predefined methods, your login will show something like this:

You can modify this page to adapt it to your branding and/or integration needs. Check out the login.html section to learn how.
