Authentication Preferences

The Authentication preferences enable you to configure settings for the host computer access code, One-Time Passwords (OTPs) and RADIUS integration (GoToMyPC Corporate only). If you are a GoToMyPC Corporate account user and the Shared Access feature is turned on by your administrator, you can view information on your host PC's accessibility.
