Use the User Identification > Logon Agent page to configure a new instance of Logon Agent, as well as to configure the global settings that apply to all instances of Logon Agent.
To add a new instance of Logon Agent:
1.
Under Basic Agent Configuration, enter the IPv4 address or hostname of the Logon Agent machine.
 
Note 
2.
Enter the Port that Logon Agent should use to communicate with other web protection components (30602, by default).
3.
To establish an authenticated connection between Filtering Service and Logon Agent, mark Enable authentication, and then enter a Password for the connection.
Next, customize global Logon Agent communications settings. By default, changes that you make here affect all Logon Agent instances.
1.
Under Logon Application Communication, specify the Connection port that the logon application uses to communicate with Logon Agent (15880, by default).
2.
Enter the Maximum number of connections that each Logon Agent instance allows (200, by default).
If your network is large, you may need to increase this number. Increasing the number does increase network traffic.
To configure the default settings that determine how user entry validity is determined, you must first determine whether Logon Agent and the client logon application operate in persistent mode or nonpersistent mode (default). (More information is available in the Using Logon Agent for Transparent User Identification technical paper.)
*
If you are using persistent mode, specify a Query interval to determine how frequently the logon application communicates logon information.
 
Note 
*
If you are using nonpersistent mode, specify a User entry expiration time period. When this timeout period is reached, the user entry is removed from the user map.
When you are finished making configuration changes, click OK to return to the Settings > User Identification page, then click OK again to cache your changes. Changes are not saved until you click Save and Deploy.
