Account Settings Page

A Sample View

The figure next is a snapshot of the account network settings tab page as it is viewed from a controller endpoint when the account has the peer to peer data communication channels of V-NET opened. The part inside of the red rectangular is not shown for this endpoint because it is not a controller endpoint. The part inside of the blue rectangular is also not shown for this account because the peer to peer data communication channels is not yet available to the account. The part inside of the blue rectangular is not shown for this account because the peer to peer data communication channels is not yet available to the account.

Page Components

  • All Endpoints: It contains buttons used to trigger operations affecting all endpoints of the account that does not require a controller privilege. The currently supported action is "Logout", which logout all endpoints that are currently actively login.

  • Change Network Name: Set a user friendly name for the current network. It is "Shared Network" inside the snapshot shown. The button Update is used to submit the changed name.

  • Change Password: Change the login password for the current account. The button Update is used to submit the changed password. All actively login endpoints, including the controller, are logged out next if the change is successful.

  • ICE Servers: It is a list of registered servers plus an empty input template at the bottom for adding a new record. The left to the template record is used to add the template to the record list above it to be submitted. For an registered item, the button to the right of it is used to request the removal of the item and the button right to an existing item requesting removal is used to cancel the request. The button to the right of a newly added item that is not yet submitted is used to remove the item right away.

    Newly added record that has not been added to the account has a sign left to it. Registered record that are modified has a left to it. Existing record that are to be deleted is crossed out with a sign left to it.

    The button Update is used to submit all the changes, if any, in one batch.

Note: only TURN servers can be registered as candidate ICE servers by a normal user. The "URL" for each record should be the IP address or domain name of the corresponding server (and port) without any protocol header.

Most of the inputs in this tab page are self-explanary.
