Some settings on the Synergis™ unit are not automatically synchronized with the Access Manager. If you change settings on the Synergis™ unit through the Synergis™ Appliance Portal, such as its logon password, its IP address, or the way it responds to connection requests, then you must change the same settings on the Access Manager in Config Tool.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Access control task, and click the Roles and units view.
  2. From the entity tree, select the Synergis™ unit you modified.
  3. Click the Properties tab.
  4. In the Connection settings section, modify the parameters to match what you configured for the Synergis™ unit in the Synergis™ Appliance Portal.
