No login screen displayed when accessing a I/A Series G3 station via web browser over Ethernet connection.

Issue

When you access a I/A Series G3 station via a web browser over an Ethernet connection, no login screen is displayed and the default home graphics page is displayed.

Product Line

TAC I/A Series

Environment

I/A Series G3 station with web access.

Cause

The station guest account is designed to allow web access to the station without the requirement for the user to log into the station.

When accessing the server station graphics via the web browser on the computer hosting the server station, the user credentials prompt is always displayed.

When accessing the server station graphics via web browser from a different computer than the one hosting the station, no user credentials prompt will be displayed and the user will be automatically logged and will have all rights defined for the Guest user account.

Resolution

Disable the "Guest" user account to prevent automatic login to the station via a web browser
