SUMMARY

I know that Laplink offers various security features. How do I set these features?

 

SOLUTION

Laplink’s security settings can be accessed in two ways:

  1. Click the toolbar icon that looks like a security lock.

  2. Point to the Options menu and click on Security.


LapLink offers four levels of security:

  • The Nobody (Private System) setting is the default until you change your security settings. This option does not allow other users to access your machine.

  • The Log-in List Only (Protected System) setting allows only certain people to access your computer. This option provides for a greater degree of security then the Anybody (Public System) option. If the log-in list is clicked, only people with a log-in name and password will be able to access your computer.
    1. On the General tab, select Log-in List Only (Protected System).
       
    2. Click Log-in List, then click Add. The Security Model screen appears.

    3. Select Laplink Authentication and click OK.

    4. On the General tab, type the Log-in Name and Password the user must provide to connect to your computer.

    5. Under Services, check the services that you want to make available to the user, such as Remote Control, File Transfer, and Print Redirection.

    6. If you've checked Remote Control as an available service, check the appropriate options under Locking Permissions to indicate whether the user can blank your computer screen and disable its mouse and keyboard.

    7. Specify any additional user access restrictions and preferences on the Folder Security and Modem Callback tabs.

    8. Click OK to add this person to your Log-in List.
      -For Laplink Gold for Windows 7: A Laplink Gold for Windows 7, Gold 2008 or Gold 12 user can now connect to you computer by using the Login Name and Password you specified.
      -For Laplink Gold 2008: A Laplink Gold 2008 or Gold 12 user can now connect to you computer by using the Login Name and Password you specified.
      -For Laplink Gold 12: A Laplink Gold 12 user can now connect to you computer by using the Login Name and Password you specified.
      -For Laplink Gold 11.5: A Laplink Gold 11.5 user can now connect to you computer by using the Login Name and Password you specified.
       
       

  • Microsoft Windows Authentication is extremely useful for people who are on a Windows Active Directory Network. This feature allows you to give access to netowrk users, so that users need only their network user names and passwords to access the Laplink Gold functions of your computer. NOTE: This is not available on Laplink Gold 11.5. 
    1. On the General tab, select Log-in List Only (Protected System).
       
    2. Click Log-in List, then click Add. The Security Model screen appears.

    3. Select Microsoft Windows Authentication and click OK.

    4. On the General tab, select your domain from the drop-down domain list (your current domain will be selected by default).

    5. Select Users from the Domain Users area and click Add to move them into the Selected area.
       
    6. Under Services, check the services that you want to make available to the user, such as Remote Control, File Transfer, and Print Redirection.

    7. If you've checked Remote Control as an available service, check the appropriate options under Locking Permissions to indicate whether the user can blank your computer screen and disable its mouse and keyboard.

    8. Specify any additional user access restrictions and preferences on the Folder Security and Modem Callback tabs.

    9. Click OK to add this person to your Log-in List.
      -For Laplink Gold 12 and newer: A Laplink Gold  user can now connect to you computer by using their network user name and password.
       
  • The Anybody (Public System) setting will give anyone running LapLink the ability to access the host machine. If you choose this option, you will also need to select which services will be available to users when they access your machine. If you chose Remote Control, you can also grant users the permission to blank your screen or lock your keyboard or mouse. These options are all available on the Security page, General tab.
    1. On the General tab, select Anybody (Public System).
       
    2. On the General tab, check the services that you want to make available to public users, such as Remote Control, File Transfer, and Print Redirection. If you've checked Remote Control as an available service, check the appropriate options under Locking Permissions to indicate whether the user can blank your computer screen and disable its mouse and keyboard.
       
    3. To limit public access to particular drives and folders, click the Folder Security tab.

    4. Click OK.
