Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.1 -- About MeetingPlace Authentication
Authenticating users against the profile database on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system is the default user authentication option. You have two options when configuring this type of authentication:
- Logging in with an HTML-based web page form. This is the default option.
- Logging in against a login window rendered by your web browser.
Regardless of the login page users see, user IDs and passwords are sent to the Audio Server system for authentication. Both profiles and user passwords must match. Profiles are case-sensitive.
