Setting up the Enterprise Server using your company/own VPN

To setup the ITmanager.net Enterprise Server and use your company/own VPN follow these steps:

  1. Download the ITmanager.net Enterprise Server Installer from our website here:
    www.itmanager.net/download/

  2. Install the Enterprise Server on a Windows server inside your private network, ideally a server which is always on and permanently connected to your network. Although, for testing purposes you may install the PNC on a desktop or laptop computer. It is only required to install a single Enterprise Server to manage an entire network of servers. You can install the Enterprise Server on multiple servers if you want to manage multiple disconnected networks.

 

 

3.Login to using the credentials you registered to setup your ITmanager.net account. 

4. Enter your Network Name(name you want to give the Enterprise Server). To use your company/own VPN in the field "Private Network Connector" from the dropdown choose "Disable". If you are using a Proxy here are instructions for Proxy setting.

5.

At this point the mobile device attempts to probe the port 135 (WMI), 3389 (RDP) and 389(LDAP) using the Enterprise Server called "Itmanager PC".  A number of things need to be in place.  The ITmanager.net mobile device app must be able to connect to "ITmanager PC" directly or using your company/own VPN client (since the PNC is disabled), one way to test this is to open the mobile device web browser and try to connect to https://ITmanager PC:4153 .  
 
The next thing is the Enterprise Server called ITmanager PC needs to be able to connect to "tor-dc-01" on port 135, 3389 or 389.  You can test this by typing on a command prompt on the server ITmanager PC the following command "telnet tor-dc-01 135" .   The Enterprise Server logs will also show the attempt to probe the 135 port if the first test succeeds.

 

 

6. In the ITmanager.net Mobile or Web App, configure your Server connections to point to the newly installed Private Network.

When you manage the selected server it will now connect using the Enterprise Server.
