In addition to user access management, you can restrict Config Tool and Security Desk from connecting to a specific Directory.


  1. From the Config Tool or Security Desk home page, click the Options tab and then click General.
  2. In the User logon options section, select Force Directory to, and type the name of the Directory.
    With this option enabled, users cannot choose the Directory to which they want to connect; the Directory field is not displayed in their Logon window. However, they can automatically be redirected to another Directory with load balancing.
    NOTE: If there is a mistake in the Directory name, such as a typo, users will not be able to connect the next time they try to log on.
  3. Click Save.
