If you have just 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 user groups, thereby affecting performance.

The Devolutions Server Console is now offered as a stand alone application. It is available on the Devolutions download page.

Please ensure before starting the installation that you have .NET 4.8 installed on your machine. Available to download from this Microsoft link: .NET Framework 4.8 Offline Installer.

It's highly recommended to enable SSL Encryption in order to protect communication with the instance of the SQL Server. Please follow the instructions from Microsoft on How to enable SSL encryption. 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.
