How do I change the number of cached passcodes stored by Offline Caching mode?

You can change the number of cached passcodes by following this procedure:

  1. Open the AuthAnvilSAS web.config file (located by default at C:\Program Files\Scorpion Software\AuthAnvil\AuthAnvilSAS\web.config) using Notepad. (Note: Notepad must be run elevated on Windows Vista or later) 
  2. Ensure that the AllowCachingMode property is set to 1. 
  3. Change the NumberOfPasscodeHashed property in the AuthAnvilSAS web.config file from the default of 25 to to the number of cached passcodes that you would like. 
  4. Save the file and close Notepad. 
  5. Run an IISReset to load the new settings.
