WinGate user database

The built in WinGate user database allows you to create and manage users and groups for use within WinGate 7. Users and groups in WinGate help you identify, administrate, and control who is attempting to access the Internet or any of its services. By identifying users (through authentication) you can use the WinGate Policy system or any WinGate scripting system to determine what they are allowed to request or access. This can be based on who the particular user is, or what group they belong to.

User identification is also important to the operation of the WinGate Permissions system. The Permissions system allows you to assign access and control permissions on module user interfaces and features, on a user or group basis. This allows you to set what access and control users have when they log into the WinGate Management console.

The WinGate Policy system provides policy items that can be used to evaluate whether the user identified by the policy, is a particular user or a member of a certain group. This is helpful when you wish to create policy outcomes that are based on particular users (or the groups they belong to).

The WinGate user database allows you to create groups to easily manage large numbers of users in WinGate. Similar to operating system level user management, WinGate user database groups can be nested within other WinGate groups to allow you to handle permissions and particular Internet access requirements.

The WinGate user database also allows you to assign users a mailbox in the built-in WinGate mail server. This integration allows for easy administration and control of WinGate users who will send and receive mail through the WinGate mail server.

You can use basic Full-Text Searches against the page title and body to find matching articles. Use the following search modifiers to refine your query:

  • event management (no quotes) will find all pages containing the words "event" OR "management"
  • "event management" (with quotes) will find all pages containing the phrase "event management"
  • +event -management will find all pages containing the word "event", AND NOT the word "management"
