RSA SecurID Software Token Installation and Configuration

URGENT: The Software Token application uses your computer's built-in clock as a timing source. It is critical that the following settings are correct:

 

***Your Time, Date and Year must be correct.

***Your Time-Zone must be correct.

 

 

 

 

Users who feel comfortable installing/configuring the software can use the "Quick Start" (text only) steps below, or the "Detailed Instructions" (step by step with images) further down.

 

QUICK START

1)     Click the 'Activation Link' in the e-mail you received from RSA_Admin@cablevision.com. Your token will remain disabled until such time that you have clicked that link.

2)  Attached to that e-mail is your 'Software Token Seed File'. Save that file to your Desktop.

3)  Download and Install the RSA SecurID Software Token software using the link below:

 

4)   You need to set your 'PIN' by testing your token at: http://cscpdmg1.cablevision.com/ . You will be redirected to the 'Test Your Token' page at our RSA website.

Þ    Since you don't yet have a PIN, simply click the arrow without entering a PIN to get your 'Tokencode'.

Þ    Enter your VPN UserID in the User ID Field, and enter the 8 digit Tokencode in the Passcode Field

Þ    You will be prompted to set a PIN Code. You can allow the system to assign you a PIN or you can select to set your own PIN.
