Requirements for Network

Internet-based Remote Session

Splashtop On-Prem is an on-premise solution and can be completely self-hosted on your office LAN network. But there are times that you need access your office computer from your house or somewhere else, and connections must be established through the Internet.

To enable Internet-based remote session in Splashtop On-Prem, you can set up the system with a couple of options:

  • Allocate the Splashtop Gateway Server in a DMZ network
  • Assign a public IP address to the Splashtop Gateway Server
  • Set port forwarding from the a public IP to the private IP assigned to Splashtop Gateway Server
  • Host the Splashtop Gateway Server on Cloud
  • Install VPN application in client devices

Firewall Port

By default port 443 is used by Splashtop Gateway to communicate with the Streamers and client devices, therefore it is important to make sure port 443 is not blocked by your network firewall or OS firewall, nor occupied by other applications.

To change the network port for Splashtop Gateway, please refer to the article below:
