With GSW Logon scripting you can limit a user to a specific application on the server.
A logon script is associated with the user and configured to automatically launch the application when the user connects(The logon script can be either global or per user). When the user exits the application, the logon script exits and the connection is automatically terminated. This allows the user to use the necessary application and only that application without accidentally (or purposely) roaming around on the server.
Please review the section on logon scripting in the User Manual for further details.
Additionally, some devices such as the LXE MX3X provide Applock application security software. Applock software restricts access to the device. The GSW SSH2/Mobile clients are compatible with Applock and may be launched from Applock
Many times System Administrators request the capability to protect certain configuration values associated with the application from being inadvertently or accidentally modified by users. Georgia SoftWorks Mobile Clients either provide this functionality or integrates and cooperates with devices that contain this feature.
The GSW Mobile Clients accomplish this protection by recognizing a user and a password-protected administrator security level. If the device provides a user and administrative level, the GSW Mobile client integrates and cooperates with the device feature. Otherwise, the GSW Mobile Client provides a user and administrative security level.
The administrator security level is allowed unrestricted access to the application. The user security level is not allowed to modify the configuration values or exit the GSW Mobile Client application.
The System Administrator can protect access to operations and values associated with the following menu items.
File|New, File|Open, File|Exit
Upon selecting the menu item File you will notice that while at the user security level the menu items New, Open and Exit are disabled. The same is true for the Session|Settings menu item.
Only the administrator security level has access to these items.
When using the GSW Mobile Client Application Protection you can enable the administrator security level by selecting the menu item File|Security as shown above. The File|Security menu item is enabled on Intermec, LXE and Symbol devices. The File|Security menu item is disabled on Psion-Teklogix devices because the GSW Mobile Client uses Psion-Teklogix security levels and is settable under Start|Security.
Upon selecting the Security menu item the Security level dialog is presented.
To switch from User to Administrator Security level you select Administrator and enter the Admin Password. The Admin Password is 7062651018. Click OK. This will enable all configuration and operations for the Administrator.
To switch from Administrator to User Security level, select User and click OK. A user password is not required.
Please see the tips section in the user manual for these mobile device clients for any special tips for Application Protection.
