3.125.4. AuthBy, <AuthBy xxxxxx> and AuthByPolicy Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

Monitor supports either a hardwired user name and password, or one or more AuthBy parameters or <AuthBy xxxxxx> clauses in a similar way to <AuthBy GROUP>. For more information, see Section 3.32. <AuthBy GROUP>. If there are no AuthBy clauses, or if they all IGNORE the authentication, the hardwired Username and Password will be tried.
If you are configuring Monitor in order to accept connections from Radar, or any other application that uses the Monitor {chap} passwords, the AuthBy needs to be one that contains plaintext passwords in its database.
