Guest account under external authenication?

Post by jwk »

I wish to (briefly) allow an off-campus colleague to visit and use our WebMO website (google uaf webmo).
However, although the guest can log on and begin creating a job, the server box in the subsequent window shows only "server.domain.edu", and there the guest is stuck. It does not help if the guest VPNs to campus.
Aside from obtaining a temporary univ ID, is there any way to allow full use of WebMO by a guest under these circumstances (WebMO 19.e)?

Yes, guest accounts work fine along with external authentication. Make sure that the guest user is a member of a group, and that the group has all interfaces/servers/queues enabled.
