.unauth File Extension

Developer: Netegrity
File type: SiteMinder Unauthorized Message File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .unauth. Files with the file extension .unauth can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .unauth files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .unauth file?

The Netegrity SiteMinder application creates text documents saved as files in the .unauth extension and uses these UNAUTH text documents as error message files. Also known as SiteMinder unauthorized message files, these .unauth text documents are referenced by the SiteMinder application when a SiteMinder authentication file with the .fcc extension detects instances where login attempts exceeding the allowable number of login attempts fail. When this happens, the SiteMinder application locates the associated .unauth file, accesses its content and displays it as an error message to notify users that they exceeded the maximum number of allowable login attempts. Since the SiteMinder application only uses the content of these .unauth files as references in these instances, the application is ensured with optimal OS and RAM resources, since this means these UNAUTH files are not loaded unto the program itself. The content of these .unauth files may be viewed using text editing applications like Microsoft Notepad and Microsoft WordPad among other popular text editing software. Also, an FCC authorization file must always be associated with a UNAUTH text file.

how to open a .unauth file?

Launch a .unauth file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .unauth file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .unauth files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .unauth file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .unauth file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .unauth files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .unauth. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
