Netop Guest Installation on a Terminal Server
1 Introduction
This article describes how to install and configure a Netop Guest on a terminal server machine, so that
it becomes available for use in each terminal server session started on that server.
Since Netop Remote Control modules running on the terminal server (in this case, the Netop Guests)
are required to communicate with Netop Remote Control modules running outside the terminal server
(i.e.: on networked PC’s or “fat clients”, in this case the Netop Hosts), you must observe certain
necessary non-standard configuration settings.
In most Terminal Server environments, the Netop Guest can be installed as on Windows PC. After the
installation, you should make some minor configuration changes in the Guest for it to be available for all
users in the Terminal Server.
In rare cases, you may have to install and run a Netop Gateway in the Terminal Server. The Netop
Gateway can receive Netop communication that uses one communication protocol and send it using
another communication protocol. It may also serve as a router for Netop traffic between virtual Netop
networks.
Note: All Netop Remote Control modules should be installed on the console session of the terminal
server machine. Otherwise, the configuration cannot be done properly.
1.1 When to use the standard Netop Guest installation?
A standard installation of the Netop Guest is advised where you do not restrict user applications
communicate directly through the attached network card. I.e. a Netop Guest is allowed direct
communication, out of the Terminal Server, with other Netop modules or services in your network or via
the internet. This is most often the case, because the general network traffic restrictions out of your
network will still apply, just like using e.g. an internet browser from within the terminal session.
For information on a standard Netop Guest installation and configuration on Terminal Server, see Using
Standard Netop Guest Installation on a Terminal Server.
1.2 When to use a Netop Gateway with the Netop Guest?
A Netop Gateway running in the Terminal Server may be necessary in the following cases:
•
•
•
•
You want to prevent the Netop Guest in all TS sessions from communicating directly through the
TS NIC.
You want the Netop Guest traffic to appear from only one TS IP/port combination.
You experience communication issues by reaching the upper limit of available receive ports.
You want the Netop Guest to be able to communicate with Netop Hosts running in TS sessions
in other Terminal Servers. And at the same time, you do not have the option of connecting
through Netop Portal or Netop WebConnect.
For information on a standard Netop Guest installation and configuration on Terminal Server, see Using
a Netop Gateway with the Netop Guest on a Terminal Server.

2 Using Standard Netop Guest Installation on a Terminal Server
2.1 Set the configuration path for all users
By default, each user has own Guest configuration, saved under the user profile.
DataPath=%systemdrive%\<user>\<PATH-TO-GUEST-CONFIGURATION>
To ensure that all Guest users have the same Guest configuration:
1. Create the file %systemroot%\Netop.ini on the server.
2. Create a [GUEST] section and add the DataPath property with the desired location where the
Guest configuration should be saved.
Example:
[GUEST]
DataPath=<PATH-TO-GUEST-CONFIGURATION>
2.2 Install the Guest
On the console session of the terminal server machine, install the Netop Guest:
1. Download the Netop Guest and run the .msi file.
2. Run the Setup Wizard making the desired settings. Click Next to run through the wizard.
3. On the wizard last page, make sure to select the Launch the Netop Remote Control Guest
product checkbox.
4. Click Finish to complete the Guest installation. Once the Guest installation is complete, the Guest
configuration wizard displays and you need to configure the Guest, see Configure the Guest.

2.3 Configure the Guest
1. Go to Tools > Communication Profiles and edit the communication profile named TCP/IP.
2. Click the Advanced button and uncheck Use default port numbers.
3. For receive port change the default 6502 into 0 (zero).
4. For clarity to your Guest users you may delete communication profiles not to be used, i.e. all but
LAN(TCP) and TCP/IP (No communication profiles are to be check marked).

The Guest is now ready for direct connections (using DNS or IP address) to Hosts using either LAN
(TCP) or TCP/IP.

3 Using a Netop Gateway with the Netop Guest on a Terminal Server
3.1 Install the Gateway
On the console session of the terminal server machine, install the Netop Gateway:
1. Download the Netop Gateway and run the .exe file.
2. Run the Setup Wizard making the desired settings. Click Next in order to run 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.
3.2 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 check mark the following communication profiles:
Terminal Server and LAN (TCP) and/or TCP/IP.
4. Edit the LAN (TCP) profile, set a name under Device group, and change the profile to Outgoing
connections only.
Click Close.
5. 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.

6. 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.
7. Make the proper naming settings and click OK.

4 Connecting from the Netop Guest to an outside Netop Host
Enter the name or IP of the Host you want to connect to, select the custom communication profile
created and click Connect.
The connection will be established through the Netop Gateway module running on the console session
of the terminal server. The communication between the Netop Gateway and the Netop Host will be the
TCP protocol.
