This document gives you information required on how to configure the Central Server in order to manage computers belonging to roaming users.
The Central server should be reachable via a public IP Address. Configure your external router to ensure that any requests sent to this public IP address are directed to the IP address of the computer in which the Central server is installed. For example,
You should configure your router to direct all requests for 126.96.36.199 at port 8020 or 8363 and 8027 to 192.168.110.101 at the respective ports. It is recommended that you make the private IP address (192.168.110.101 in the above example) static to ensure uninterrupted communication.
