File Authentication

File Authentication allows the experimenter to limit the names with which subjects can connect to the multistage server, by checking the names entered against those in a list contained in a file in the bin directory of the multistage installation.

Enabling File Authentication

To enable File Authentication, the experimenter needs to change the verifier parameter in the file, located in the conf subdirectory of the multistage installation.


Configuring File Authentication

Once this change is made, the experimenter needs to create the list of acceptable login names. Create a file in the bin subdirectory of the multistage installation called auth-file.txt and fill it with the required names, one per line.

For example an auth-file.txt containing the following lines:


would allow users to log in with any of five different names, as listed in the file.
