How to authorize the administrator

Use AUTH=admin option to specify how to authenticate a remote user and authorize the remote administration of this DeleGate. In this example, if the client send the username "dgadmin" with the password "dgpass", then the client is authorized to be the administrator.

Remote administration is recommended to be done via HTTPS/SSL, accessing this server as "https://thisHost:8080/-/admin/". A port number followed by "/admin" means accepting HTTPS/SSL on the port. DeleGate for any application protocol can have a dedicated port for administration.
