Activate Web Start on the Management Server

When you install the Management Server, the files needed for distributing the Management Clients are included in the installation. You can simply enable Web Start access to these files on the Management Server.

A webpage is activated that administrators can load using a web browser to start the Management Client.

  1. Select Home.
  2. Browse to Others > Management Server.
  3. Right-click the Management Server, then select Properties.
  4. Switch to the Web Start tab.
  5. Select Enable.
  6. (Optional) Enter the Host Name that the Web Start service uses.
  7. (Optional) Enter the (TCP) Port Number that the service listens to.
    By default, the standard HTTP port 80 is used on Windows and 8080 on Linux (which does not allow using reserved ports for this type of service).
    Note: Make sure that the listening port is not in use on the server. For ports reserved for SMC services, see the appendix regarding Security Management Center ports.
  8. (Optional) If the Management Server has several addresses, to restrict access to one address, specify the IP address in the Listen Only on Address field.
  9. (Optional) Select Generate Server Logs if you want to log all file load events for further analysis with external web statistics software.
  10. Click OK.
