Adding your Username and Password to a Go-Global Icon.

This is an easy process and the steps are outlined below, but before you begin please find your list of server addresses and your username and password.

***NOTE*** do not do this on a public PC, make sure you are the only person with access to this machine.

Step 1: Creating the Icons

  • You will need to create a shortcut for each county that you will be accessing on your desktop.  This is very simple to do, just click on “Go-Global”, when it asks for the Server address, enter the address and click the box under that address.  It should say “Create a desktop icon”.
  • When it asks you for the Username and password, you can cancel.
  • The only thing we wanted to do was create the icon.
  • Repeat this for each of your counties.
  • You can rename each of these icons to just the county name if you want.  Simply right click on the icon and select “rename”

Step 2: Adding the Username/Password to the Icon

  • Select an icon that you want to change
  • Right click on the icon
  • Select “Properties”
  • You should now see a line called “Target”, the box beside it should contain information about GO-Global.
  • Click on this box and go to the far right…  Just past the -c
  • after the -c you will space one time
  • now enter -u username
    put your username here… NOT the word username
    The username should be in all upper case letters
  • now enter -p password – put your password here… NOT the word password
    Make sure you do the right case
  • Click on the “OK” at the bottom of the screen and you are done.
  • Now when you click on this icon, GO-Global will open and log you into the system automatically without asking you for the server address or the Log-in information

The two images below will show you a before and after of the target line.  Click on the image to see it larger.
