Install the DameWare Internet Proxy with another web server

The DameWare Internet Proxy installs a web server to allow users to download Internet Session agents, handle proxy requests, and host Internet Session resources for users. It also creates and installs a self-signed security certificate for secure communications.

DameWare uses the http.sys web server engine, which IIS also uses. The http.sys engine allows multiple applications to use the same IP address and port number. However, two different engines cannot bind to the same port number.

You can turn on the DameWare Internet Proxy component on computers that already have a web server installed on them.

Installing with IIS

When installing on a computer that has IIS installed, ensure that the Internet Session URL does not already exist. The Configuration Wizard creates the virtual directory from the Internet Session URL and cannot successfully create the path if it already exists.

If you already use a third-party security certificate, the DameWare Internet Proxy does not create a self-signed certificate and uses the preexisting certificate instead. See Removing the Security Error for Internet Sessions for information on installing a third-party security certificate on the DameWare Internet Proxy.

Installing with Other Web Servers (Apache, Tomcat, etc.)

When installing on a computer that does not use the IIS web server and http.sys engine, such as Apache or Tomcat, you cannot serve multiple applications out of the same port number.

By design, most web servers only serve one application per port number. For example, if you already serve an application out of port 443, you cannot use port 443 with the DameWare Internet Proxy. To run the DameWare Internet Proxy on the same computer, you must use a different port number for each application.

You can change the port number used by the DameWare Internet Proxy by changing the Internet Session URL in the Configuration Wizard. For example, if you want to run the DameWare Internet Proxy out of port 444 instead of port 443, change the Internet Session URL to https://domainName.com:444.

Additionally, the Internet Session URL cannot already exist in your directory structure. The Configuration Wizard creates the virtual directory from the Internet Session URL and cannot successfully create the path if it already exists.

If you already use a third-party security certificate, the DameWare Internet Proxy does not create a self-signed certificate and uses the preexisting certificate instead. See Remove the security error for Internet Sessions for information on installing a third-party security certificate on the DameWare Internet Proxy.
