How do I use Remote Authentication to access my sites or admin area?

In ScreenSteps you set up Remote Authentication using Single Sign-on endpoints. This article describes the relationship between Single Sign-on endpoints, domains, sites, the ScreenSteps administration area,  and the ScreenSteps desktop application.

Before you begin you should review the following articles:

  1. The article on remote authentication.
  2. The article discussing how Single Sign-on endpoints, domains, sites, and your account are associated.
