I have installed the component but I could not access it on front-end, it gives me 401 error. What am I missing?

You need to set permission settings. All corejoomla components comes with powerful permission settings, which gives you immense control on various functionalities of the component such as component access, create, view, manage etc. The permission settings can be configured on user group level, so you can easily set permissions for your user groups.

How do I set permission settings?

For Joomla 1.5 powered websites, you can find the permissions under Components->COMPONENT_NAME->Configuration->Permission Settings tab.

For Joomla 1.6 and above, you can find them under Components->COMPONENT_NAME->Configuration->Options button on toolbar. Where COMPONENT_NAME is name of the component you are using.

Can I set permission settings per user level?

No. Only user group level permission settings are possible.
