Enabling authentication in UltiDev

By default, everyone in your network has access to the Lansweeper web console. Access can also be restricted however, by following these instructions. To have your browser handle authentication of anyone accessing the console, you will need to make changes to your web server settings. Your web server is either IIS, IIS Express or UltiDev. If you're unsure which web server you're using, have a look at the Configuration\Website Settings section of the Lansweeper console. This article explains how to enable authentication under UltiDev.

 If you have your browser handle authentication, you may be prompted for a username and password whenever you open the web console. Login prompts are browser specific. Some browsers will, by default, prompt for credentials. Others will, by default, automatically log into the console as the currently logged on Windows user. To enable or disable prompts, follow the instructions in this knowledge base article.
UltiDev has known bugs and performance issues. It is generally recommended that you move your web console to IIS or IIS Express instead.


If your web console is hosted in UltiDev, do the following to enable authentication in your web server settings:

  1. Run the following executable, found on the machine hosting your console:
    Program Files (x86)\UltiDev\Web Server\UWS.Explorer.exe
    running UWS.Explorer.exe
  2. The UltiDev Web Server Explorer will open. Select your Lansweeper web console on the left, below Default Shared Host Process.
  3. Open the Authentication tab and set the authentication type to Windows Integrated (Kerberos/NTLM)
