By Use Case
Once you have the CurrentWare Web Console installed, you will notice the URL to access it will be generally the PC Hostname of the CurrentWare server. An example would be desktop-kqwe123qw:8998. There are a couple steps involved with changing the name of the URL link to have easier management access.
To get the CurrentWare Web Console to use the custom web URL, you will need to update the app-config.json to point to the new domain.
On the cwServer computer, browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\CurrentWare\cwWebConsole\WebConsole\. Open the app-config.JSON file in notepad. Change the “http://NAME:8997/api/” to something you would rather use.
After the URL is changed in the .JSON file on your cwServer, you will need to configure your computer or router to map the CurrentWare Web Console domain to your cwServer IP address.
There are two ways to to this:
They must also update the host file on their computers to get past the login.
Use the hosts file to map the new domain to your server’s IP address. When you type in the new name with :8998 on your browser, it will automatically point to the IP address of your CurrentWare Server.
You will need to modify the hosts file on all of your IT administrator’s computers.
LAN IP address New name
Instead of editing the hosts file on your computers, you can opt to modify the DNS settings on your router. By doing this, you are asking your router to resolve the custom domain URL, to the IP address of your CurrentWare Server. This can be done by visiting your router configuration page.
Every router configuration is different. Follow your router’s user guide to find out how to modify the DNS settings.
