Specify user name and the corresponding password to connect to the specified forest. 

Store the above user credential in Microsoft Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet - ARKWE allows the user to enter different user credentials to connect to the forest. Uncheck the checkbox 'Log on using current user' if you like to connect to the forest using a different user context. 

ARKWE will store the user credential to connect to forest in the Microsoft Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet / Credential Manager for security reasons. The stored user profile is tied to the user context (currently logged on user account) in which the profile is created.
