This setting enables/disables the developer logs in Winshuttle Manager. These logs are enabled by default with the tracing level set to ERROR. Set this to OFF if you wish to disable Winshuttle Server debug logs. Set this to ALL if you want to log all messages.
- The default location for log files is C:\Program Files\ShareVis\logs
- If the installation location was changed, the log files will be placed in the <install folder>\ShareVis\logs
Within the Logs folder, separate log files are stored depending upon the type of logging you enable:
- Core – sharevis.log
- SVService – sharevis_svservice.log
- Timer – sharevis_timer.log
- SVAdm – sharevis_svadm.log
- Central Admin – sharevis_ca.log
Note: Setting this to ALL is not recommended because it can create large log files.Back to top

There are 3 types of authentication supported in Winshuttle Server:
- Windows: Windows Authentication is used by default when using published Web services in Winshuttle Server. Most clients support this authentication scheme.
- Basic: Some clients such as JAVA clients do not support Windows authentication. Basic authentication can be used for these clients. The user must provide credentials (Username/Password) when using published Web services.
- None: No client authentication is required. This is not a recommended option and can only be used with specific versions of Winshuttle Server used for development purposes.
Changing Authentication Type
- In the System.ServiceModel section, next to Client Authentication Scheme for Published Services, select the authentication method from the drop list.
