This document outlines the steps needed to configure the Access It! Web Client. The following steps need to be completed on the intended web server. In most scenarios, the web server will be the same machine as the Access It! Universal.NET server (machine with dongle attached).
Beginning with Universal.NET v7, Internet Explorer will no longer support the capturing of cardholder images via a camera, and can only be imported. With the discontinuation of Flash support, the image capturing has been updated to use HTML video streams which Internet Explorer does not support. Web browsers which do support this technology include Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox.
