SmarterStats Enterprise has the ability to gather logs on a remote windows server using the remote service. This will run as a standalone service on the remote server reducing the primary servers load when gathering stats. NOTE: Before installing SmarterStats Remote Service, make sure the appropriate .NET Framework is installed, based on that version's System Requirements. (Versions 11.x and newer require the 4.5 Framework.) If it is not installed, please do so before completing the steps in this KB. You can download the Web installer for .NET from the Microsoft Download Center.
Applies to SmarterStats Enterprise 6.x - 11.x

Adding the Server
Follow these steps to add the server to SmarterStats:

In addition, the Web interface communicates with the remote service via port 50003. Firewalls or any other security measures that might prohibit communication from this port must have rules established to open this port.
