Hello all,

I’m would like to install Kerio FW on a dedicated server (W2K3).
Before a did a test on one machine here, I notice I was locked out and need to configure behind the console and could not configure it by RDP.
Is it possible to install Kerio FW by RDP (port 3389) ore the Kerio Administration Console if I enable Remote admin with my External IP ?
I can reboot the Dedicated sever remote.
Please can someone tell me if it is possible ore do I have to look for a other product ?

Thanks for helping me out

on winroute versions < 6.0.3 you could manually insert a rule for RDP in your winroute.cfg file before rebooting. this, however, seems to be a no-go with the current build (no reboot required). probably its possible to somehow prevent the winroute service from auto-starting during the installation.

btw, enabling remote admin on the PUBLIC ip is a not-so-smart thing to do Wink

Hello lightxx

Thanks it works Wink Wink
I thank you for the working hint.

BUT for someone how wants to do the same, I have make a backdoor (just during the install).
Quit easy, I use WinAT.exe (google for winat) and ad one rule net stop winroute for each 60 minutes and net start winroute each 3 minutes later.


So during the install I can make a mistake configuring Winroute because Winroute will stop for 3 minutes.
When everything is fine I remove the rule who start and stop the winroute services
A dedicated server is a nice thing but the problem is you cannot use the console, a simple thing like winat make it possible to enter the server remote even do you make a mistake.

Thanks for helping me out
