This article discusses the Personal Host List and Global Host List that can be accessed after installing DameWare Remote Support or DameWare Mini Remote Control in centralized mode.

Note: User credentials cannot be stored in either list.


All DameWare Central Server versions


Connecting to the central server allows access to the Global Host List and the Personal Host List. The Global Host List is shared across all Machines, but the Personal Host List can only be viewed on individual machines. For example:

Machine A and Machine B will connect to the central Server. Both machines will be able to view the Global Host List, but Machine A will not be able to view Machine B's Personal Hosts list and vice versa.


You can create your own host list that follows you to different installations of the Remote Support or Mini Remote Control applications. This feature is available to DameWare Central Server users (version 11.0 and later) with Remote Support or Mini Remote Control running in centralized mode.


Changes made to your Personal Host List are saved to the central server. Every time you log in to Remote Support or Mini Remote Control running in centralized mode, the application queries the central server for your Personal Host List.


Your Personal Host List can only contain the following information:

  • host name or address
  • protocol type
  • comments


To save other information, such as credentials or performance settings, you must save the host to the local Saved Host List. This information is then tied to the local computer and is not available in your Personal Host List on other computers.
