12.1. Service settings in Active Directory network through the cloud

For Active Directory service settings, go to Dashboard -> Settings -> Active Directory. Add a name of an AD domain in the field and click Add.

Specify a name of a domain controller (the short name without the domain name) and its IP address.

Then go to Domains -> Aliases and enter domains of AD local resources, which should be available to users.

12.2. Working with Active Directory through a special version of the agent

To work with Active Directory via SafeDNS Agent, you should download a special server version of Agent. You can get a SafeDNS Catserver Agent by contacting our technical support.

12.3. Working with Active Directory for single filtering settings

To work with Active Directory for filtering settings go to a domain controller, then Start -> Administrative Tools -> DNS and select the server that hosts a DNS server (server name). Next, open Settings -> Redirect Server and add the IP address of the SafeDNS DNS server, and click OK.

12.4. How to enable multiple account administrators

Attention! This feature is only available on the Enterprise plan. If you are a user on this plan, do the following:

1. Go to Dashboard -> Account -> Administrators.

2. Then you can add account administrators 

3. Enter email and password for each administrator.

After that, all the added administrators will be displayed in the list below. The added administrators have the same rights as you, except for the ability to create other administrators.

12.5. How to see Administrator activity log

You can monitor administrator activity logs in Dashboard -> Account -> Logs.

12.6. How to install Agent on a corporate network

For unattended installation of SafeDNS Agent run the installer with /S switch in the command line ("S" upper-case only). This functionality is supported by SafeDNS Agent starting from version 2.6.

The following keys are acceptable in the command line:

/login=< login > option allows you to specify your login (for example, safedns-agent-setup /S /login=email@email.com /pass=qwerty).

/pass=< password > option allows you to specify your password (for example, safedns-agent-setup /S /login=email@email.com /pass=qwerty). It is mandatory to use the /login and /pass options together. If only one of the options is used, then firstly launch the login, and the password will be requested via GUI.

/prof=< profile > option allows you to specify the necessary profile (for example, safedns-agent-setup /S /login=email@email.com /pass=qwerty /prof=My profile). If the option is not used or a wrong profile is specified, then the Default profile will be used.

/conn=< interface > option allows you to specify network interface that should be protected (for example, safedns-agent-setup /S /login=email@email.com/pass=qwerty /conn=Wi-Fi).

/pall switch should be used if all network interfaces are to be protected. If both /conn option and /pall switch are used, then only the latter takes action. If neither /conn option nor /pall switch is used, then default network interface will be protected.

/dupd switch turns off automatic checks for new versions of Agent.

/darun switch disables automatic startup of SafeDNS Agent GUI when Windows starts (no Agent icon will be shown in the system tray). This switch does not affect the functionality of the SafeDNS Agent system service.

/D=< path > option allows you to specify the installation directory ("D" upper-case only). It must be the last option used in the command line and must not contain any quotes, even if the path contains whitespace characters (for example, safedns-agent-setup /S /login=email@email.com /pass=qwerty /D=c:\program files(x86)\SafeDNS Agent). Only absolute paths are supported.

Don't quote options containing whitespace characters (for example, /prof=My profile).
