This section lists the settings found in the Synergis™ access control unit Portal tab, in the Access control task. This tab opens a window to the Synergis™ unit's web-based interface (Synergis™ Appliance Portal) which allows you to configure and maintain the unit.

Synergis™ Appliance Portal allows you to perform the following tasks:
  • Change the security password required to log on to the Synergis™ unit.
  • Configure the network settings on the Synergis™ unit so it works on your system.
  • Configure the Synergis™ unit to accept connections from specific Access Managers.
  • Enroll and configure the interface modules attached to the Synergis™ unit.
    NOTE: There is one exception to the rule. Mercury controllers (EP and M5-IC) must be enrolled and configured from Security Center Config Tool in the access control unit's Peripherals tab.
  • Configure the access control behavior of the Synergis™ unit, for both online and offline operations.
  • View the activity logs stored on the Synergis™ unit.
  • Test and diagnose the interface module connections to the Synergis™ unit.
  • View and export the Synergis™ unit's status and configuration.
  • Upgrade the Synergis™ unit's firmware (Synergis™ Softwire).
  • Restart the Synergis™ unit's hardware or software.
  • Update security clearance levels assigned to Security Center areas manually on the appliance when the connection to the Access Manager is lost.
