A Devolutions Server instance is 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.

Key points to consider:

  • Please ensure before starting the installation that you have .NET 8.0 installed on your machine.
  • It is highly recommended to enable SSL Encryption to protect communication with the instance of the SQL Server. Please follow the instructions from Microsoft in Configure SQL Server Database Engine for encrypting connections. 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.
