  • In the Connector configuration screen:
    • Enter the Connector’s IP address or FQDN, and a name for the connector. Provide a meaningful name, as this will allow you to effectively filter devices based on connector names.
    • In the Connector configuration screen, indicate whether or not the connector should be private. A private connector only allows the current user and the administrator access to the connector’s devices.
