The General tab of the Publisher property sheet has the following components:
Name Shows the name of the publisher.
Type Shows the type of object.
Allowed to connect Select this option to allow the publisher to connect to the database. If the publisher is not allowed to connect, the password (if one was supplied) is removed from the account. If you later change the publisher to allow them to connect, you must supply a new password. Clearing this option disables the Password and Confirm Password options.
Users are almost always allowed to connect.
Password Type the password for the publisher. Passwords are case sensitive.
Confirm password Confirm the password that you typed in the Password text box by entering it again. The contents of the two fields must match exactly. Passwords are case sensitive.
Comment Provides a place for you to type a text description of the publisher. For example, you could use this area to describe the publisher's purpose in the system.
