Use the connection preferences dialog to specify default settings for systems used to test policy. These systems can be remote machines or virtual machines (e.g., VMware) as long as a secure shell server and SLIDE Remote run on the target.
To specify a new test system, press 'Add' and a new connection will be added with default values. To modify these defaults, select the new connection and change the values as desired.
|Name||Unique name for the connection.|
|Refresh||Frequency at which the connection polls the remote machine for information.|
|Host||IP address or name of the remote machine.|
|Port||The port number on which SLIDE Remote listens. Do not change this value unless you have customized SLIDE Remote.|
|Username||Login name to use on the remote machine. The user must have permissions to read log files and manage policy.|
|Password||Password for the specified user. Leave this field blank to be prompted for the password when the connection is established.|
|Log Files||Log file(s), including path, to show in the audit view.|
Press 'Test Connection' to verify the settings. Note that SLIDE Remote helper process must be running on the remote machine for this to work. Any communication problem will be reported.
