The Internet Proxy communication type setting allows you to choose to use port forwarding between Remote Host applications and the DameWare Internet Proxy. This allows Remote Hosts to have transparent access to the Internet Proxy.

Forward through the Central Server

Select this option to use the Central Server to forward Remote Access traffic to the DameWare Internet Proxy. You must enter a port number in the Proxy listening port field. Any communications directed to that port will be forwarded to the Internet Proxy. The default is 443.

Forwarding off (default)

Select if you do not want to forwarding traffic from the Central Server to the Internet Proxy. The application will communicate directly with the Internet Proxy. No additional set up is necessary.

Forward through a custom router

Select to use a router to forward Remote Host traffic to the Internet Proxy. The router must be configured to forward communication requests to the DameWare Internet Proxy. This is a separate step that must occur on the router. You must also enter the IP address or host name of the router and the port number designated on the router for DameWare Internet Proxy requests.

To modify the port forwarding setting:

  1. Go to Internet Proxy > Settings.

  2. Select Remote Host Port Forwarding.

  3. Click Edit in the Action bar.

  4. Select the Forwarding type.

    1. If you select Forward through the DameWare Central Server, enter the proxy listening port number. The default is 443.

    2. If you select Forward through a custom router, enter the router IP address or host name and the proxy listening port.

  5. Click OK.

Changing this port forwarding setting is not automatically propagated to already installed remote agents. Existing remote agents need to be reinstalled in order for the new port forwarding setting to take effect. Note that this setting does not impact whether a remote host can be remotely connected to. Using port forwarding simply allows a newly deployed remote host to show up in the admin console for approval while still connected directly to the internal LAN.
