Desktop Central's WAN architecture helps managing windows computers that are span across multiple locations that are connected via VPN or Internet. When computers in different locations are connected via Internet, the Desktop Central Server has to be installed and configured as an edge device. This means that the designated port (default being 8020) should be accessible through Internet. You need to adopt necessary security standards to harden the OS where the Desktop Central Server is installed.
