MDaemon Remote Administration

Remote Administration is disabled

Choose this option to disable Remote Administration. You can also toggle Remote Administration active/inactive from the File menu, or from the Servers section of the Stats frame on the main MDaemon GUI.

Remote Administration runs using built-in web server

Choose this option to run Remote Administration using MDaemon's built-in web server. You can also toggle Remote Administration active/inactive from the File menu, or from the Servers section of the Stats frame on the main MDaemon GUI.

Remote Administration runs using external web server (IIS, Apache, etc)

Choose this option when you wish to run Remote Administration under Internet Information Server (IIS) or some other web server instead of MDaemon's built-in server. This prevents certain GUI elements from being accessed which might otherwise cause conflicts with your alternate server.

For more information, see Running Remote Administration under IIS.

Remote Administration server uses TCP port

This is the port on which Remote Administration will listen for connections from your web browser. The default port is 1000.

Sessions expire after xx inactive minutes

When you are logged in to Remote Administration, this is the amount of time that your session is allowed to be inactive before Remote Administration will close it. The default is 15 minutes.

Miscellaneous Settings

Use cookies to remember logon name and other properties

By default the Remote Administration interface uses cookies so that the user's browser can remember the user's login name and other properties. Disable this checkbox if you do not wish to use cookies. Using this feature gives users a more customized login experience but requires that they have support for cookies enabled in their browser.

Require IP persistence throughout remote administration session

As an added security measure you can click this checkbox to cause Remote Administration to restrict each session to the IP address from which you connected when the session began. Thus, no one can "steal" the session since IP persistence is required. This configuration is more secure but could cause problems if you are using a proxy server or Internet connection that dynamically assigns and changes IP addresses.

Stop Remote Administration when MDaemon stops

Click this option if you want Remote Administration to be shut down whenever MDaemon is shut down. Otherwise, Remote Administration will continue to run in the background.

Use HTTP Compression

Click this check box if you want to use HTTP compression in your Remote Administration sessions.

Send anonymous usage data

By default MDaemon's Remote Administration web client sends anonymous, benign usage data such as: the OS used, browser version used, language, and the like. This data is used by MDaemon Technologies to help us improve Remote Administration. Disable this option if you do not wish to send anonymous usage data.

X-Forwarded-For header

Click this checkbox to enable the use of the X-Forwarded-For header, which is sometimes added by proxy servers. This option is disabled by default. Enable it only if your proxy server inserts this header.

Enable Remember Me

Check this box if you want there to be a Remember Me checkbox on the Remote Administration sign-in page when users connect via the https port. If users check this box at sign-in, their credentials will be remembered for that device. Then any time they use that device to connect in the future they will be signed in automatically, until such time that they manually sign out of their account or their Remember Me token expires.

By default, user credentials are remembered for a maximum of 30 days before the user is forced to sign in again. If you wish to increase the expiration time then you can do so by changing the value of the Expire Remember Me tokens after this many days option in the MDaemon Remote Administration (MDRA) web-interface. You can also change it by editing the RememberUserExpiration=30 key in the [Default:Settings] section of the Domains.ini file, located in the \MDaemon\WorldClient\ folder. The expiration value can be set to a maximum of 365 days. Note: Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) has its own Remember Me expiration key (TwoFactorAuthRememberUserExpiration=30), located in the [Default:Settings] section of the Domains.ini file, located in the \MDaemon\WorldClient\ folder. Therefore 2FA will again be required at sign-in when the 2FA Remember Me token expires, even if the regular token is still valid.

The Remember Me option is disabled by default.

Because Remember Me allows users to have a persistent login on multiple devices, users should be discouraged from using it on public networks. Further, if you ever suspect that an account may have had a security breach, in MDRA there is a Reset Remember Me button that you can use to reset Remember Me tokens for all users. This will require all users to sign-in again.

Remote Administration URL

This is the URL that Webmail will use internally when users click the Advanced Settings link to edit their account settings via Remote Administration. If you are running Remote Administration with the built-in web server, then leave this field blank. If you are using an alternate web server such as IIS, and you have configured Remote Administration to run at an alternate URL or IP address, then specify that URL here.

Bind Remote Administration's web server to these IPs only

If you wish to restrict the remote administration server to only certain IP addresses, specify those addresses here separated by commas. If you leave this field blank then Remote Administration will monitor all IP Addresses that you have designated for your Domains.

Restart Remote Administration (required when port or IIS value changes)

Click this button if you wish to restart the remote administration server. Note: when changing the port setting you must restart Remote Administration in order for the new setting to be recognized.

Edit Mailing List Admins

Click this button if you wish to open the mailing list administrators file to view or edit it.
