Connecting to Exchange Rules Pro Service

As CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro can be operated via the Administration Panels installed either in domain or non-domain environments, the program lets you define the most efficient way for the Administration Panel to connect to the Exchange Rules Pro Service (Fig. 1.).

Connection settings.

There are two types of connections available:

  • Automatic - recommended for domain based environments,
  • Manual - recommended for non-domain based environments.

Automatic connection is the fastest way to find the Exchange Rules Pro Service within a domain and thus it will not be useful when connecting from the outside of a particular domain. However, if you encounter any connection issues in the automatic mode, the manual connection type may also come in handy.


The automatic type of connection is set by default.

The manual connection type needs to be used while setting up the connection from a non-domain machine equipped with the Administration Panel of the program. In such a case, the automatic connection will not work as the server will not be located.

To set up the manual connection, mark the Connect to Exchange Rules Service hosted on this Exchange Server radio button, enter the Server's IP address or name and then define the Server's TCP port (Fig. 2.). To save changes, click OK.

From now on, the Administration Panel will connect to the Exchange Rules Pro Service by using the defined connection type.
