SSH Tectia Connector will connect only to SSH Tectia Server with Tunneling Expansion Pack or SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS.
The SSH Tectia Connector users must be able to log in to an existing user account, preferably a non-privileged user account, on the server.
Users can have their own user accounts. If the Windows login name can be used also as the server-side login name, the variable
%USERNAME% can be conveniently used in the configuration of SSH Tectia Connector.
Most of the authentication methods supported by SSH Tectia Server can be used with SSH Tectia Connector users. The authentication methods include password, any keyboard-interactive methods such as SecurID or RADIUS, public-key authentication with certificates on smart cards, and GSSAPI if the SSH Tectia Server and SSH Tectia Connector computers are part of the same Windows domain, or SSH Tectia Server can perform initial login to MIT Kerberos realm on behalf of the SSH Tectia Connector user.
User interaction is required for the keyboard-interactive authentication methods and typically at least the first time when the private key stored on a smart card is accessed in public-key authentication. Please see Chapter 5 for details of the user authentication methods.
