When you have installed DameWare Remote Support or DameWare Mini Remote Control in centralized mode, you must first connect to the DameWare Central Server. This allows you to login and use your personal host list or a global host list.
You can log in using either Windows authentication, if your Active Directory account has the appropriate permissions, or your DameWare Central Server credentials.
You need the following information to connect to the DameWare Central Server:
DameWare Central Server user name and password, if using DameWare authentication
DameWare Central Server IP address or host name
Service Port Number
The DameWare Central Server user name and password are independent of your other credentials and are established by your DameWare Central Server administrator. The Central Server administrator must also provide the DameWare Central Server IP address or host name and the port number to use.
Note: If this is your first time connecting, you should change your password from admin after you log on by navigating to File > Change Password.
To connect to the DameWare Central Server:
If you do not want to enter your credentials each time, select Remember the last connection settings.
Select the Advanced settings tab.
The default connection settings are displayed. To change these, enter the DameWare Central Server IP address or host name and port number.
Note: The default port is 6133.
If you change the settings and want these to be used in future, click Save as default.
Note: When you click Reset to default, the last saved server information populates the fields.
Click Connect to server.
