Resolution

  1. Configure the user you want to automatically log in to the Xenta Server
  2. Generate a certificate
    To avoid having the certificate error pop up every time you connect to the Xenta Server, go to XBuilder, and generate a certificate that has the same name as the IP address of the Xenta Server.
  3. Edit Slogin.html and loggedout.html
    1. Connect to the Xenta Server using FTP
      ftp://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
    2. The Slogin.html and loggedout.html are located in the folder www/index
      Copy the files to your local hard drive
    3. Edit the files with, for instance, notepad and change the following
      Slogin.html
      Line 54
      document.AuthForm.UserID.focus();"
      document.AuthForm.UserID.focus(); send(AuthForm);"

      Line 98
      input type="text" name="UserID" value="" size="20" >
      input type="text" name="UserID" value="user" size="20" >

      Line 104
      input type="password" name="PassWord" value="" size="20">
      input type="password" name="PassWord" value="password" size="20">

      loggedout.html
