The user authentication service requires the creation of user accounts at the firewall level. To access the features of this module, you must first create or configure your LDAP base (see document Directory configuration or module Users\Directory configuration).

The accounts contain all the information relating to these users:

  • ID
  • Name
  • First name
  • E-mail address (optional)
  • Phone number (optional)
  • Description (optional)

The Users screen consists of 2 parts:

  • A banner showing the various options
  • The list of CNs (or users) in the left column, accompanied by information about them in the right column.

These are the tables indicating the maximum number of users that can be authenticated simultaneously according to the model of your firewall:
