SilverSHielD v6.0 introduces significant enhancements to user management, especially with regards to its support for Active Directory.
It is possible to authenticate all your AD users in SilverSHielD by creating a special user profile and using * (star, or asterisk) as a username; that user must be allowed to perform password authentication, and the “use Windows/AD account auth” option must be enabled.

In order to make sure Cloud2Drive works on your endpoint, please, make sure that:
- There is an exception in your Windows Firewall that allows unrestricted Internet access to the Cloud2Drive main executable (Cloud2Drive.exe); this exception rule is set by the Cloud2Drive installer itself, but in case this doesn’t happen you will need to create such exception manually
- If you have a network firewall, make sure it allows outbound requests to your cloud storage provider’s servers, and HTTPS (port 443) access to Extenua’s Head Server cluster at head.extenua.com
These settings are required to ensure proper operation of the Cloud2Drive agent.
