9.11 Running a Terminal Launcher

Terminal applications require Terminal Launcher to execute for single sign-on. After you create the application definition in the Management utility, you must configure it to start Terminal Launcher. A shortcut is created to enable the user to run Terminal Launcher and the terminal emulator from the desktop with automated single sign-on to the application or server.

  1. Select Start > Programs > Novell SecureLogin > Terminal Launcher. The Terminal Launcher dialog box is displayed.

  2. In the Available applications list, click the required application definition (in this example, Eicon Aviva).

  3. Click Add to move the selected application to the Login to list.

  4. Click Edit Available Emulators. The Available Emulators dialog box is displayed.

  5. In the Available Emulators list, click Eicon Aviva.

  6. Click Edit. The HLLAPI Emulator Configuration dialog box is displayed.

  7. In the Emulator Path field, specify the emulator executable’s location.

  8. In the Home Directory field, specify the emulator’s home directory.

  9. In the HLLAPI DLL field, specify the file name and path.

  10. In the Session Files field, select and delete the current session files.

  11. Click Add. The Emulator Session File dialog box is displayed.

  12. Browse and select the configured session file.

  13. Click OK to close the Emulator Session File dialog box.

  14. Click OK to close the HLLAPI Emulator Configuration dialog box.

  15. Click Done to close the Available Emulators dialog box.

  16. In the Terminal Launcher dialog box, ensure that Eicon Aviva is selected in the Emulator drop-down list.

  17. Under Options, select the Save Settings On Exit check box.

  18. Click Close.

You can choose to start emulator applications in Terminal Launcher; however, users might not have access to Terminal Launcher. To simplify login for users, a desktop shortcut is created.

To successfully automate single sign-on, Terminal Launcher must start before the terminal emulator application, so the desktop shortcut includes the command to run Terminal Launcher first and then the emulator application.

NOTE:Record the exact name given to the terminal emulator in the Terminal Launcher dialog box, because it is referred to in the desktop shortcut.
