  4. In the Server field, enter the name or the IP address of the computer, where the EgoSecure Server is installed.
  5. In the Port field, enter the port to communicate with the Server, specified during the installation . By default, this port is 6005.
  6. Enable the Use EgoSecure authentication check box and enter your login data.
    If the check box is not enabled, you can log in via your Windows account and no login data is required. To login via Windows account, your Windows account must be previously added to Console as an administrator.
  7. Click OK.
    ⇒ The Server connection data are saved. The next time you start the Console, all you need to do is to enter the login data.
