Desktop Integration for Windows XP

Next Steps?

You may want to consider customising the Desktop authentication flow under the Authentication tab. The default configuration is to ask the user to answer a random number of their reset questions; however with the 1.1 release of Access Manager additional modules PIN, Passphrase and One Time Password have been introduced.
