The Advanced Configuration option allows you to configure DameWare Server components when you run some or all components on separate computers. You can also use the Configuration Wizard to change port numbers, edit the Internet Session URL, modify the locations of DameWare Server components, or turn components on or off.

If you wish to run the DameWare Internet Proxy, which allows you to create Internet Sessions to help users outside your internal network, you must turn on both the DameWare Central Server and the DameWare Internet Proxy. These components can run on different computers.

The DameWare Mobile Gateway can run independently of the DameWare Central Server and DameWare Internet Proxy.

During configuration, you will need to know the following information about each component:

  • IP address or host name
  • Service port number
  • Communication port number
  • Pairing Password (DameWare Internet Proxy and DameWare Mobile Gateway only)

Configuring DameWare Internet Proxy

If you run the DameWare Internet Proxy on a different machine than the Central Server, you need the component pairing password from the DameWare Internet Proxy when you run the Configuration Wizard on the DameWare Central Server computer.

You should also verify the default Internet Session URL. You can skip this step and finalize the Central Server configuration or you can test the Internet Session URL. This ensures that users outside of your network will be able to join an Internet Session and download a DameWare agent if necessary.

For more information about the Internet Session URL, see the following topics:

You must also open port 443 on your organization's firewall to use Internet Sessions. See Port requirements for more information.
