By default, configuration window displays basic configuration settings only. It is recommended that you click the "wrench" icon in the bottom left corner to configure advanced settings.

NOTE: To configure advanced settings, your user account may need advanced privileges. See Users and Security Settings for more information.

Configure the following:
