Access Control doesn't Control Access


Access Control doesn't Control Access

Just finished setting up my XR500 and as a final step I'd like to enable access control, but I can't find it anywhere in the setting?

Can someone please guide me through the configurations menu to this setting.


It has always been under settings -> advanced -> security, but with a 3rd party software it's all different.


Help please!

Re: Access Control doesn't Control Access

Hi Aje,
This feature was present up until the last firmware I believe. There was a bug that needed to be fixed with it but the feature was removed instead for some reason. I'm unsure if it will return once the bug has been fixed or not.
