Installation Settings: Connection and Authentication tab

Client Management Suite for Mac

The Connection and Authentication tab lets you configure the communication and the authentication settings for the Symantec Management Agent for UNIX, Linux, and Mac push installation.

Warning: Do not use non-ASCII characters in file or directory names when you configure installation settings.

On the client side, SSH must allow the certificate connection, where by default only user name and password are used. The procedure for generating an SSH key is beyond the scope of this guide.
