You can set up host groups to control access to the Access Server and to simplify management of the hosts that are docked. When remote users connect to the Access Server through the host list, they can view the groups of docked hosts and select the host they want to connect to.
You can hide individual host groups from TCP/IP searches to protect the hosts from unauthorized access. Remote users must provide the group name to connect to any of the docked hosts that are contained in the group.
You can configure the Access Server to require the host computers to dock to a specific host group. Host users must supply a valid group name and the appropriate password to dock to the Access Server.
You can choose not to require host computers to dock to a group. Any hosts that do not specify a group name or password are assigned to the Default group.
You can set a password for the host group. The host user must supply the password to dock to the group. The group password does not apply to remote connections. Remote users only need to supply the group name to access the docked hosts that are contained in the group.
