Once the system is reboot you should now see a Windows Logon prompt including an AuthAnvil passcode prompt.

Testing functionality

When the user logs into a Windows Desktop locally or remotely they will see the following.

The AuthAnvil Passcode consists of a Pin+OTP.

Note: Users will need to enter a four digit pin here as well as the One Time Password.
For the Pin your users will use Pin: 1234
The actual Pin requirement was a hold over from the old On-Prem configuration. On-Demand does not use the Pin, however it respects the value being submitted.

Advanced configurations

See this article for advanced setup options.

Note: Offline caching mode is currently not compatible with AuthAnvil On-Demand user accounts.
