How Do I Get a New Machine Credential On My Second Computer?

 

If you already have an ATO machine credential file on your PC and need it on a second PC for STP, there are a couple of ways to set it up.

The first way is to reapply for a new machine credential at the ATO's RAM website.

The second is to simply copy the credential file and move it to your new PC using Lightning Payroll's Tools menu at the top of the program.

Click Tools >> Export Machine Credential to save a copy of your ATO keystore XML to a USB or other location of your choice.

Click Tools >> Import Machine Credential to load a machine credential XML file into Lightning Payroll.

For example...
Export the machine credential on the existing STP payroll PC, saving it to a USB. Then transfer the USB to the second PC and use the Import Credential option to locate the XML file on the USB and import it for STP usage on PC #2.
