Selecting your Network Configuration

Depending on your infrastructure setup, there are several ways that CCleaner Network can be set up.


For small networking environments with a single Network Admin or no local servers.

The Management Console and the Management Service are installed on the same host. This is the default action for the installer, so no additional configuration is necessary by the user.


For larger Networks with multiple Network Admins and a local server.

This setup involves installing the Management Service onto a local server, and then installing the Management Console onto each of the Administrator's Endpoints. The multiple Management Consoles can then connect to the Management Service from any Endpoints on the Network, or remotely via VPN.


For managing multiple Networks or sites.

This is same as the above "Many-to-one" setup except it adds multiple Management Services. In this case you will need to install a Management Service onto a server within each Network. The benefit is that a single Management Console can simultaneously connect to every site, and can manage them all from a single point. We recommend this approach for Managed Service Providers and Enterprise deployments.
