If you just have received your license serials, please refer to the Getting Started topic.

 

A Devolutions Server instance is actually a web application. This allows for exposing its services on the Internet or an intranet.

 

The recommended topology is the use of two servers: a Database server and a Web server. For smaller installations, a single server can be used, but resources will be shared between the two roles, thereby minimizing performance.

Remote Desktop Manager Enterprise Edition for Windows must be installed on the web server in order to manage the Devolutions Server instance.

It's highly recommended to enable SSL Encryption to protect communication with the instance of the SQL Server. Please follow the instructions on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316898 Note that we recommend this be done after the initial setup is complete.

For full active directory integration, the application pool uses a domain identity, both servers need to be joined to the domain.
