What is authentication?
Using authentication means you can have Palace closed server. Only members or
guests who have the correct user name and password can connect to a Palace server
Clients will be allowed a variable number of attempts to connect to the server. After
those attempts, if a valid user name and password have not been entered, the client
will receive an error message.
The authentication features consists of the Palace server, an authentication daemon and
a standalone Palace User Software client. To support authenticated entry, you must use
The Palace User Software for Windows 95 version 3.3 or higher, or The Palace User
Software for Macintosh version 2.4.3. Go to the Palace website to get the current
