The Connection tab page allows you to specify connection settings and logon information.

In the Connection Settings section, specify the following properties:

  1. In the Primary Connection field, specify the remote computer hostname or IP address.

  2. The Port field contains the TCP port 3389 by default, which is the standard port for RDP connections. You can modify it if the port number was changed on the remote computer.

  3. In the Friendly Name field, choose and type a name of your choice, so you could easily identify the server in Parallels Client later.

In the Logon section, specify the following properties:

  1. Select the Auto Logon option to enable Parallels Client to connect automatically (using this connection) on startup.

  2. In the Authentication type drop-down list, select the desired method of authentication:

    • Credentials. Select this option and then enter the username, password, and domain information. You will be authenticated on the remote server using the specified credentials. Please note that if the password specified in the connection properties has expired or will expire soon, you will see a corresponding message on the screen when trying to connect to Parallels RAS. If the password has expired, you'll be asked to change it. If the password will expire soon, you will be offered to change it now or later. Simply follow the instructions and change (or postpone if you wish) your password.

    • Smart Card. Select this option to authenticate using a smart card. When connecting to the remote server, insert a smart card into the card reader and then enter a PIN when prompted.

    • Single Sign-On. This option will be included in the list only if the Single Sign-On module is installed during Parallels Client installation. Select this option to use local system credentials to connect to the remote server.

Note for Administrators: The allowed authentication type(s) must be specified in the RAS Console in Connection / Authentication.
