WMS Anonymous User Authentication

The WMS Anonymous User Authentication plug-in provides anonymous users access to your server. If you have enabled other authentication methods on your server, you can also enable this plug-in to support users that do not have an assigned user name and password. You can configure the following options on the General tab for this plug-in.


Item Description

User name

Type the user name you want to assign to anonymous users when they are accessing content. By default, the Windows user account WMUS_computer is assigned to anonymous users, where computer is the name of the Windows Media server. WMUS_computer is created when you install Windows Media Services.


Type the password associated with the anonymous user account. The password is used only within the Windows operating system; anonymous users do not log on by using a password. During Setup, a password is randomly generated for the WMUS_computer user account. If you change the password for the anonymous user account in the operating system, you must update that password here to allow anonymous users access to your content.

Passwords are case sensitive.

Confirm password

Retype the password to verify that you entered it correctly.
