Specifies whether the Web server filter will authenticate users that are defined in the Content Server database.

  • When set to TRUE, the Web server filter will not validate users against the internal user names and passwords from the Content Server database.

  • If Basic Authentication is enabled in IIS, then this setting must be TRUE. This setting enables browsers to use Basic authentication when logging into the Microsoft Network; users can log in using a Windows user name and password using the Netscape browser.

  • If this option is enabled, new users can be added only by adding them to a Windows network domain, since users are not authenticated against the Content Server user database. However, if the database happens to have a user of the same name as a Windows network user, then the Content Server security profile is used instead of the Windows network profile.

Default is FALSE.
