Creating a custom landing page

You can customize the web page that is used to start the process to download and temporarily install the target software. The web page can be integrated into your own company website.

About this task

Remote control sessions with on-demand targets require certain resources from the remote control server to be available to users through the Internet. However, it is not desirable to make the remote control server directly available to the Internet.

Therefore, because the number of resources that are required is small, several strategies can be used to enable the on-demand target function:

  • Configure at least one of the brokers in your environment as a reverse proxy. This configuration allows internet users to reach a limited set of resources from the remote control server. The resources are needed exclusively to support on demand target connections through the Internet. For more information about configuring a reverse proxy, see On-demand target portal access for internet users.
  • Enable a separate website to be used as the portal on which to run remote control sessions with on-demand targets.

In both cases, you must edit the value of the ondemand.url property in the file. Set the URL to refer to the external service that is providing access to the on-demand target application. You can enable a static website or a dynamic website. For more information about editing the ondemand.url property, see Configuring the landing page URL.

If you want to start a Remote Control session through Lite Web Portal, to configure custom landing page, you must edit the value of the liteweb.portal.url property in the file. For more information on configuring Lite Web Portal properties, see Configuring Lite Web Portal.
