The following outline the key features provided by this version, as well as issues resolved in this release:
Client Login Extension 3.7 SP3 provides the following features that are supported only with NetIQ Self Service Password Reset (SSPR) 3.1.
Client Login Extension now supports force enrollment. While logging in, users are prompted to set their challenge responses, failing which they cannot proceed.
Client Login Extension now displays the number of days before which the password will expire, every time you log in. And if the password has already expired, it displays a warning message. This feature allows you to change the password before it expires or after it has expired. You can choose to change the password using SSPR through the CLE restricted browser.
NetIQ Client Login Extension 3.7 SP3 provides software fixes for the following issues:
Issue: When you access the Forgotten Password link, it does not connect to the password provider, even though the Forgotten Password dialog is displayed.
Fix: This release fixes this issue.
Issue: If you have installed Client Login Extension on a Windows 7 computer and have logged into a domain, theoption is displayed when you select the option.
Fix: Theoption is no longer displayed for a domain user.
Issue: On a wireless network, the URL to the SSPR server is not available (for about 20 seconds or so) until the wireless network is available. If you wait for 30 seconds or so, and then click the link, it works as expected. However, if you click the Forgotten Password link quickly, the following message is displayed: Navigation to page was canceled. What to try: Refresh the page..
This message does not clearly convey that the network is currently unavailable and that you must try to connect again
Fix: When network is not available, Client Login Extension now displays meaningful messages to indicate the correct status of the network connection.
Issue: When the restricted browser is launched, it includes external links almost always on your customers Forgotten Password Web page. When you click on one of them, in a working Client Login Extension, the external links work and you can browse to other links in the restricted browser.
Fix: Now you cannot access external links from a restricted browser. If you attempt to do so, it displays the following message:
Access is restricted to your target server. You may not follow links to other servers.
Issue: Client Login Extension does not work as expected and displays a blank page.
Fix: Client Login Extension now successfully works on Italian Windows 7 computers.
Issue: After installing Client Login Extension, the restricted browser fails to launch.
Fix: Client Login Extension now successfully launches the restricted browser on Japanese Windows 7 computers.
Issue: When you host SSPR, PWM, or any other password management solution with a a certificate signed by the Certificate Authority (CA) that has expired, when the Client Login Extension performs the certificate check, Internet users can navigate through the Certificate screen and access the computer illegally.
Fix: This release of Client Login Extension displays a warning message that the certificate has expired and blocks the users from accessing the computer illegally.
