Description

Passphrase

The passphrase to use for authentication when initiating a remote connection to the Mac computer.

  • This string must match the passphrase defined in the UFT Connection Agent preferences on the Mac computer.
  • The passphrase can be empty, but a long and complicated passphrase provides better security.
SSL CA certificate file

The path to the CA certificate to use to validate the SSL certificate file received from the UFT Connection Agent after initiating a remote connection to the Mac computer.

  • The CA certificate file must be accessible to UFT when it sets up the connection.
  • Certificate bundles are also supported.
  • The CA certificate file is only relevant if SSL is used for the remote connection. This is specified when the connection is initiated by selecting the Use SSL option, available when you configure the remote connection.

    The SSL certificate file and its SSL private key must be specified in the UFT Connection Agent preferences on the Mac computer.
