Controlling pconfig access to the agent

You use the /AgentSetup/pconfigRequiresAuthentication variable to restrict access to the agent for pconfig commands. If you set the variable to yes, pconfig-agent connections require a valid account. You can enter the username and password at the command line or you will be prompted for the account. For more information about how to enter the account, see  Syntax of pconfig. When pconfig connects to more than one agent, the account is sent to all agents.
