Manual:The Dude v6/Admins
v6.36rc13 and newer builds
In v6.36rc13 and newer software builds The Dude no longer has separate user db. Starting with this build server relies on ROS users. To gain access to server in group policies dude policy must be selected.
v6.36rc12 and older builds
The admin pane allows you to set up accounts that connect to The Dude server. The accounts can have different kinds of permissions depending on which user group they belong to.
