The final step before we can log into the web client, is to configure the client with a proxy user which is used to connect to SQL Server. If you did this while installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP desktop client, you do not need to do this step now (provided of course that the username and password you set while installing the web client match what you set when installing the desktop client.

To configure (or manage) the Web Client SQL Sever Login, launch GP Utilities and log in using the sa or other user account with security admin permissions:

On the Welcome step, click Next:

Enter the Login Name you want to use for the web client. As mentioned earlier, this needs to match the one entered when installing the web client itself.
