The installation process and configuration are straightforward. Run Setup-ICS .exe program on the system you decided to use as the Remote Server. Then follow the installation steps and wait until the program asks you to reboot.
You can select between two custom options by ticking the corresponding boxes : Use custom proxy settings or Only download setup which does not install ICS.
Web servers are listening on ports 80 and 443 by default. We recommend you to accept our ICS default installation settings.

In order to access your ICS server from a remote location, you will have to create a port forwarding or port redirection rule for the 3389/80/443 ports depending on your preferred connection method. You can change the RDP port on the Home tab. And the 80/443 ports can be changed on the Web Server tab.
Go to the Applications Tab to add, edit, remove and assign Applications.
Your Remote Desktop Server must be available, easy-to-access and safe. That’s why ICS utilizes a built-in HTTPS Web Server which helps you easily manage its status and operations directly from the AdminTool.
More, with the Web Application Portal, you will be able to publish Microsoft Windows applications (business applications, Office applications…) to the web.
As in Citrix, your users can access their applications directly from the Internet, simply by clicking on the application icon in the Portal web page, directly inside their own Internet browser!
Plus, using the Web Portal Design and the Web portal Preferences, you will be able to create your own customized HTML Web Access pages – and there is no need to be a web developer!
