To update the password protected settings
To update password protected settings on the client machines an additional file is needed in the shared update location: password.xml. The file contains the password(s) needed, encrypted, and is generated using a password tool that comes with the LAN Update package. During updates, F-PROT Antivirus will read the password in the file “password.xml” and supply it when, and if, prompted (internally).

Image 2: Change a password. Here, it shows the password is being changed from “old_password” to “new_password”. When the new password has been applied to the client computers, password.xml has to be re-generated with “new_password” as the current password.
