I want to install Kerio WinFirewall router on a server that is hosted on a shared machine on vmware infrastructure.

I can only access the server using Remote desktop connection.

I anticipate kicking off installation and then being disconnected once the firewall installation starts to implement the default traffic rules.

During installation I will enter my own ip address to allow me to hopefully re-connect using the Kerio remote admin console.

Question:
Does the username entered into the console during
installation (the Kerio default is Admin) need to be an administrator on the host machine i.e. my server for the Kerio Winfirewall to have sufficient permissions to install all its components correctly ?

Many thanks & kind regards
Kevin

Initially your KWF will not use the Windows credentials, but use it's own internal database. So yes: you should login Windows as someone with Administrative privileges to be able to install KWF. But no: this does not need to match the admin account within KWF itself.

I'd like to add a big AFAIK and IMHO here. Perhaps first test this on a test computer you have nearby Smile
