Is there a way to default Web Access to use "this is a private computer" when auto-logging into Web Access via Windows Auth? A customer is finding that they are being logged out quickly because it is not defaulting to this, despite having checked the "Allow Web Access to authenticate users using authentication tokens stored in the user's cookies" in Web Access Config. I've had them increase their "PublicTimeout" value, but that's more of a workaround than a solution. Any thoughts?
Thanks, Kenneth. It looks like we can just add Checked="true" in login.aspx to accomplish the same thing. The line looks like this:
<td class="bttn"><asp:RadioButton ID="PrivateModeButton" GroupName="SecurityMode" runat="server" Checked="true" /></td>
If you want it set to private computer by default, your "checked='true'" option is the simplest fix. As Ken correctly points out though, that could cause some undesirable issues. If you're feeling ambitious, creating a new custom login page would allow you to have the functionality you're looking for, without any of the downsides. It's up to you what the best course of action is!
you can create a custom webpage to log in and have that control whether or not that setting is enabled when logging in.
EDIT: When you customize your log-in page, you can have it send values for certain attributes when you hit the "Sign-In" button. This can be used to send that value for an enabled "This is a private computer" checkbox and also remove it from being seen to the end user.
What is nice about a custom log-in page is that you can have it so the user does not need to select the repository they are logging in to and you can also make it look however you like with some simple HTML tags
