The Server tab is used to specify display and logging options when accessing an ArcIMS service or an ArcGIS Server ArcPad Service.
Default to Automatic Refresh (applicable to ArcIMS layers only)
When checked, all new Server layers added to the map will have the Default to Automatic Refresh check box checked on the Server page of the Layer Properties dialog box. When unchecked, the Default to Automatic Refresh check box will be unchecked for all new Server layers added to the map.
It is recommended to uncheck this option when using a slow Internet connection.
The default is checked.
Log IMS Requests (applicable to ArcIMS layers only)
When checked, log files are created for all new ArcIMS layers added to the map. These log files are created in the same folders as the ArcIMS layers and have the same names as the ArcIMS layers’ .gnd files but with .log extensions. All communication between ArcPad and the ArcIMS layers in your map will be written to these log files. This option is useful for troubleshooting ArcIMS connection problems.
The default is unchecked.
Protected Services Credentials
Enter the Username and Password to be used to access secure services. Password-protected services can be accessed via either HTTP or HTTPS.
The default is blank for both the Username and Password.
