The Express Configuration option quickly configures all DameWare Server components with default values.

Express Configuration uses the default port numbers and the host name of the computer on which the software is installed to configure the DameWare Central Server, DameWare Internet Proxy, and DameWare Mobile Gateway.

Configuring DameWare Internet Proxy

If you have installed the DameWare Internet Proxy, you are prompted to 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 a user 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.

To run all components on the same computer (Express):

  1. If the DameWare Server Configuration Wizard does not automatically open, navigate to Start > Programs > SolarWinds > DameWare Server> DameWare Server Configuration Wizard.

  2. Review the installed components, and click Next.

  3. In the DameWare Server Configuration Wizard, select Express Configuration (Recommended for evaluation), and click Next.


  4. If you want to evaluate the Internet Session, click Test Connection and correct any errors.


  5. If you do not want to evaluate the Internet Session at this time, select I do not want to test the Internet Session URL (Skip this step), and click Next.


  6. Note the default accounts, and click Finish.


After you have completed installing and configuring DameWare Server, log on to the DameWare Administration Console to add users, create a global host list, or modify your server settings.

To launch the Mini Remote Control or Remote Support applications or the Administration Console manually, navigate to Start > Programs > SolarWinds > DameWare Product, and select the application. You will need your DameWare Server user account information to log on.
