From Zero to Hero: Publish your application for free with our 30 day trial

Did you know that you can publish your application to the web? You can take advantage of our free 30-day trial! In this quick tutorial, we will show you how to set up a website in NoIP. Use it to demo your application to your clients!

Before starting, make sure you have a working instance of Thinfinity Remote Desktop or Thinfinity VirtualUI.

  1.  Register the URL you want to use for your demo application using NoIP. NoIP, which gives you a free hostname for 30 days :

https://www.noip.com/

Once you registered your domain, bind it to the public IP address of your Thinfinity VirtualUI  server:

If your server is behind a Router, then you’ll need to do some port forwarding. NoIP has some good examples on how to do so :

You can also check if the port you wish to use is opened, using the following page:

Now that we have a URL pointing to our server, let’s create an SSL certificate for it :

  1.  Install WIN-Acme on your Thinfinity server and follow the instructions for creating an SSL certificate.

Win-Acme is a small client that uses Let’s Encrypt servers for creating free SSL certificates.

Below you will find their URL and some basic information:

https://www.win-acme.com

https://www.win-acme.com/manual/getting-started

Certificates created using Win-Acme are automatically stored in your ‘Personal’ Folder.

Click ‘Apply’ and navigate to the URL.

Open a browser, and navigate to the URL configured for Thinfinity.

You should see now that the URL is now protected with a valid HTTPS certificate :

And that’s it!

 

Now you can publish your application to the web, and have a 30-day free website for demo purposes!
