Introduction

Password Depot Enterprise Server is an extension for Password Depot. Using the Enterprise Server, clients (i.e. the main program Password Depot) can share one or more databases located on a server in a network. The main Password Depot program serves as client.

 

Password Depot Enterprise Server is installed on a computer in the local network. There, the administrator sets up the users with the Server Manager and assigns them access rights for desired databases or elements within the databases.

 

Authorized users can use the Password Depot main program (client) to access databases on the server which they are authorized to. This requires the IP address and the port of the server as well as login data (user name and password) set up by the administrator. Apart from that, Integrated Windows Authentication (SSO) is also possible.

 

NOTE: The database is opened by the server and made available to users. If you want to make an already existing database available on the server, enter its master password in the Server Manager.  

A user who wants to access a database provided by the server does not do so by using the master password of this database, but by using the user name and password he has received from the server administrator. The administrator also determines which databases a user can retrieve and also sets the access rights.

 

Clients can open databases through the server and use the data they contain. Clients can also modify entries if they have the appropriate permissions to. In this case, Password Depot Enterprise Server locks the entry which is currently being edited so that no other changes can be made by other users at the same time, thus avoiding conflicts. However, it is possible for several users to simultaneously work on the same database.

 

The number of users you can set up on the server is defined by your license. For example, if you have purchased a license for 25 users, you can set up 25 users at maximum etc.

 

NOTE: No license is required for the use of the Enterprise Server up to three users. In this case, you can use it without a license.
