On the Mode tab, you can connect Dr.Web for Linux to the central protection server (by enabling Central protection mode) as well as disconnect from the central protection server (if so, Dr.Web for Linux is operating in Standalone mode).

To connect Dr.Web for Linux to the central protection server or disconnect from that, use the corresponding check box.
On attempt to establish connection to the central protection server, a window with connection parameters appears.
Picture 64. Server connection dialog
To establish connection to the central protection server, specify the following parameters (provided by your network administrator or Internet service provider):
•Address of the central protection server
•Port used when connecting to the central protection server
•Path to the file with the server public key
Moreover, you can enter the identifier and password for the workstation to authenticate on the server (if known). Authentication will succeed only if the correct pair of identifier/password values is specified. If the fields are empty, connection will be established only when approved on the server (automatically or by the anti-virus network administrator, depending on server settings).
You can also select the Connect workstation as "newbie" check box. If allowed on the server, a unique login/password pair will be automatically generated after the connection is approved. Note that if this check box is selected, a new pair of values is generated even if the workstation already has an account on the server.
To connect to the server, specify all of the parameters, click Connect and wait for connection to be established. To close the window without establishing a server connection, click Cancel.
