Specify a Realm Name

Updated: March 15, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012

Realm names are used for network routing and authentication. They provide the identification necessary to forward authentication requests to the server that holds the user's credentials. In Windows, this is often an Active Directory® Domain Services (AD DS)domain name. Realm information is only used for dial-up connections.

 

Setting Description

Do not add a realm name to the user name

Specifies that the connection profile sends the user name to the remote server exactly as typed.

Add a realm name to the user name

Specifies that the connection profile adds the realm name entered on this page to every user name before it is sent to the remote server for authentication.

Realm name (include separator character)

Specifies the text added to the user name before it is sent to the remote server for authentication.

Before the user name

Specifies that the realm name is to be prefixed to the user name. Commonly used when the '\' character is the separator between realm and user name.

After the user name

Specifies that the realm name is to be suffixed to the user name. Commonly used when the '@' character is the separator between user name and realm.
