Netop Host Installation on a Terminal Server
1 Introduction
This article describes how to install and configure a Netop Host on a terminal server (TS) machine, so
that a Netop Guest running outside the terminal server can connect to any individual session running on
that server.
There are two basic ways for a Netop Host to be available for remote access from a Netop Guest.
1.1 Incoming traffic
The classic way is to let the Host wait for incoming traffic. This method works nicely when the Host runs
in a PC or in the console of a server. But if the Host needs to be accessible in one or more terminal
server sessions you cannot just reach it by address:port. In this case, the Netop Gateway can help
route the Netop traffic between the Hosts running in TS sessions and the Guests that need access to a
specific session. For information on how to use the Host with a Gateway on a TS, see Using a Netop
Gateway with the Netop Host on a Terminal Server.
In order for the Guest to identify the right session to connect to a mechanism must be in place for this.
One method for identification is provided under Configure the Host.
1.2 Outgoing traffic
Another way to create accessibility to the Hosts is to let the Host use outgoing traffic to a connection
service. The Guest that needs to access the Host will also use the connection service to find the right
Host. Netop provides connections this way through the use of Netop Portal or Netop WebConnect.
These connection services may be available as Netop hosted service, as on-premises self-hosted
service or as a Virtual Private Cloud.
Note: All Netop Remote Control modules should be installed in the console session of the terminal
server machine. Otherwise, the configuration cannot be done properly.
For information on allowing the Host use outgoing traffic to a connection service, see Using Standard

2 Using a Netop Gateway with the Netop Host on a Terminal Server
2.1 Install the Host
On the console session of the terminal server machine, install the Netop Host:
1. Download the Netop Host and run the .msi file.
2. Run the Setup Wizard making the desired settings. Click Next in order to go through the wizard.
3. On the wizard last page, make sure to select the Launch the Netop Remote Control Host
product checkbox.
4. Click Finish to complete Host installation. Once the Host installation is complete, the Host
configuration wizard displays and you need to configure the Host, see Configure the Host.
2.2 Configure the Host
1. Run through the Host configuration wizard and select the desired setup options to make the Host
ready for use. On the Netop Host Startup Mode window, make sure to select the Start with
Windows option.

2. Complete the wizard configuration clicking the Finish button. The Netop Host is now up and
running.
3. Go to Tools > Communication Profiles and select only the Terminal Server profile.
Click Close.
4. Go to Tools > Program Options. The Host general options display (that is, the General tab). Make
sure to select the Load Host at Windows startup (run as service) option.

5. Click the Host Name tab and from the Naming section, select the Use environment variable
option. This will allow you to select an individual name (for example,
%computername%\%username%) for each of the TS sessions.
6. Make the proper naming settings and click OK.

7. Make sure that the Host will start with any new TS session by adding the lines below into the
%systemroot%\Netop.ini file:
[HOST]
RDPAware=1
8. Restart the Netop Helper Service:
2.3 Install the Gateway
On the console session of the terminal server machine, install the Netop Gateway:
1. Download the Netop Gateway and run the .msi file.
2. Run the Setup Wizard making the desired settings. Click Next to go through the wizard.
3. On the wizard last page, make sure to select the Launch the Netop Gateway product checkbox.
4. Click Finish to complete the Gateway installation. Once the installation is complete, the
configuration wizard is displayed and you need to configure the Gateway, see Configure the
Gateway.

2.4 Configure the Gateway
1. Run through the configuration wizard and select the desired setup options to make the Host ready
for use. On the Netop Host Startup Mode window, make sure to select the Start with Windows
option.
2. Complete the wizard configuration clicking the Finish button. The Netop Gateway is now up and
running.
3. Go to Tools > Communication Profiles and select the following communication profiles: Terminal
Server and LAN (TCP) and/or TCP/IP.
Click Close.
4. Go to Tools > Program Options. The gateway general options display (that is, the General tab).
Make sure to select the Load Host at Windows startup (run as service) option, this will load the
Gateway at Windows startup.

5. Click the Host Name tab and from the Naming section, select the Use environment variable
option. This will allow you to select an individual name for the console session (for example,
%computername%\Gateway) where the Gateway runs.
6. Make the proper naming settings and click OK.

2.5 View instances
Restart the Netop Helper service. You should see the Gateway running in the console session and a
Host instance running in each terminal session on the server.

The session where the Administrator is logged in is the console session (the session directly on the
machine), with the Session ID 1. That is the session where the Gateway process NGWW32.exe is
running.
The session where Admin is logged in is an RDP session (started via Microsoft Remote Desktop), with
the Session ID 2. In this session, a Host process NHSTW32.exe is running.
2.6 Connect to the terminal session
2.6.1 Connect using LAN (TCP)
1. Open the Netop Guest and connect to the terminal server by filling in the TS TCP/IP Address in the
Host section and selecting LAN (TCP) from the Communication profile drop-down.
The connection will be established to the Gateway module, and a prompt will be displayed, asking if
you want to remote control the Gateway, or a Host behind it.

2. Either browse for Hosts, or enter the Host ID for the session you want to connect to.
Click OK.
You should see both the console session (the Gateway) and the terminal session running on the
server (the Host).
3. Double-click on the terminal session ID to connect.

Note: Alternatively, you can enter the IP address of the terminal server in the TCP/IP Address field
and the name of the session in the Name field to connect directly to the desired terminal session.
2.6.2 Connect using TCP/IP (UDP)
1. On the Netop Guest, go to Communication profiles and check the TCP/IP communication profile.
Restart the Guest. Now the TCP/IP profile will initialize at the Guest start-up.
2. From the Communication Profile drop-down, select the <Any initialized communication> option
and click the Browse button. Depending on your broadcast options on the TCP/IP communication
profile, if the broadcast reaches the terminal server, you should see all Hosts available in your
broadcast segment, including the Gateway console and terminal sessions on that server.
