File Archive Assistant settings
The File Archive Assistant can be installed manually or by the System Administrator using Group Policy Object (GPOGroup Policy Objects). For both installation types, the URL of the GFI Archiver server needs to be configured. This is the address used by File Archive Assistant to connect to GFI Archiver.
You should be able to use the File Archive Assistant when logging onto your computer. However, if authentication fails, you can change the connection settings that enable the File Archive Assistant to communicate with the GFI Archiver server.
To manually configure File Archive Assistant:
1. In the Microsoft Windows desktop toolbar of your computer, right-click the File Archive Assistant icon.
2. In the Connection tab, configure the following:
A user can select both Windows Authentication and Custom Authentication methods, given that the user credentials entered in the Custom Authentication field are of the same user logged on the computer. The application will try to use Windows Authentication by default, but if this fails, it will try to use the Custom Authentication settings.
If you are logged in Windows and enter Custom Authentication credentials for a different user, all activity history is cleared and your Synchronized Folders are disabled. New Synchronized Folders need to be created for the new user (A default Synchronized Folder is automatically created if this feature is configured in GFI Archiver).
3. Click Apply.
4. Click OK.
