How to Set up the Remote Desktop Web Service Analytics
In the previous post we discussed the Thinfinity Remote Desktop Web service modules. In this article, we will show you how to set up the ThinRDPWS-Query web service demo for .Net.
Check that you are running the latest Remote Desktop version or update your server setup.

The ThinRDPWS-Query demo

The ThinRDPWS-Query demo was developed in C# to present the many integration possibilities the Analytics Web Service provides you. This application shows Thinfinity Remote Desktop Server activity information concerning logins, sessions, connections, and browsers used to access remote computers at several time intervals.

Checking the Web service status and port

Before running the application, please check the Services system dialog to see if the Thinfinity Remote Desktop WebService Admin Tool service is started.

Open the Thinfinity Remote Desktop WebService Admin Tool and verify the port the web service is listening on. In this case, the port is 8499. Also, you can see the service status message at the General tab bottom line.
