Crucible uses 'System' instead of given username to access Perforce

Trying to setup connection to a Perforce repository using Crucible 3.4.4.

System is running on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise edition (64-Bit)

Perforce Client is installed in D:/Perforce/p4.exe

Username is give as 'script' and also a password is set.

By Test Connection I get following error message:

Perforce Server Version: P4D/LINUX26X86_64/2014.1/886167 (2014/06/25)

Perforce Server Time: 2014/11/10 06:59:28 +0100 CET

Non-zero exit status determining latest revision: com.atlassian.utils.process.ProcessException:Non-zero exit code: 1 | Access for user 'SYSTEM' has not been enabled by 'p4 protect'.

Error testing connection.

Connection failed.

Why is crucible not using the given user?
