Adding a User to the Client

After your system admins create a user for you, an email is sent to you with a link to activate this user. Click the link and create a password, then enter the following login details for the Client:

  • Account name

  • User name

  • Password

For accounts that use SSO, you need to enter your email address to add a new user to the Client.

To add a new user to the Client:

  1. From the Home page of the Client, click the connect button.

  2. Enter the login information for your user.

    The Client connects to the Cato Cloud.

Connecting to a Specific PoP

By default, the Client automatically connects to the optimal PoP based on geolocation and connectivity metrics. For more information on the Client connection process, see ​Installing the Cato Client​​.

You can override this process by manually entering the IP address of a specific PoP you want the Client to connects to. To view the IP addresses of Cato's PoPs, see Production PoP Guide​​.

To select the PoP the Client connects to:

  1. From the navigation menu in the Client, select Settings.
  2. Select Manual PoP.
  3. Enter the IP address of the PoP you want the Client to connect to.
  4. Select OK.
    The Client connects to the manually selected PoP.
