About offline authentication
・To enable offline authentication, the PC must be successfully authenticated online once.
・Each time the PC is successfully logged in, the offline authentication period is updated.
 e.g. Consider an offline expiration date set to 3 days.
   If the PC is successfully logged on on April 1st, offline authentication will be enabled from April 1st to April 3rd.
   If the PC is successfully logged on during the above period, it is effective for an additional 3 days from the date of successful authentication.
・Please contact your administrator for the offline expiration date.
