Overview

This article provides steps on how to change the Dameware Central Server or the Dameware Internet Proxy host name.  

 

Environment

  • DameWare Remote Support version 11.0 and later
  • DameWare Mini Remote Control version 11.0 and later

Steps

When the DameWare Internet Proxy or Central Server is installed, a self-signed certificate is also installed and bound to a port. If you want to change the host name after the DameWare Internet Proxy or Central Server has been installed, you must create and bind a new self-signed certificate.
If you use a certificate from a certificate authority, the certificate authority must reissue the certificate with the new host name. See KB 400180 for instructions on installing a third-party certificate.

 

To create and bind a new, self-signed certificate:

  1. Log on to the computer with administrative privileges.
  2. Run services.msc.
  3. Stop the DameWare Server service.
  4. Open a command prompt.
  5. Navigate to your DameWare installation folder in the prompt. By default it is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\DameWare Server.
  6. Run the following commands to delete the certificate where port_number is the original, bound port:

DameWare.Server.InstallHelper.exe DeleteWcfCert port port_number
   7. Run the following command to create the self-signed certificate where hostname is the new host name and port_number is the DameWare service port (the default service port number is 6133(:
DameWare.Server.InstallHelper.exe CreateWcfCert hostname port_number
   8. In the Manage Services window, start the DameWare Server service.
