Password

NCrunch Grid Node configuration setting Default Value: (none)

Purpose

This configuration setting specifies a password for a grid node server. Any client connecting to the grid node must specify this password.

This password is used to encrypt all data exchanged with the grid node server.

If the password is left blank, no encryption will be used for the connection. This may improve performance when done on secure networks.

Recommendations

It's recommended that you always use a password when setting up NCrunch with distributed processing, unless you have a very secure network.

Do not rely on only a password when operating in security sensitive environments routing through the public internet. Using a password in combination with an encrypted VPN is a much more secure approach.
