Before you can connect your application to the Simple Host service, you'll need to explicitly grant the user administrator privileges to the Simple Host ports and addresses using Netsh.exe tool.


  1. Make sure that the user has an administrator account on the computer.
  2. Right-click the Command prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  3. At the command prompt, type:

    netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:8001/SimpleHost/ user=<domain>\ <user>

    Replacing <domain> and <user> with the computer domain and user name respectively.

    NOTE: To remove this permission, use the following command:

    netsh http delete urlacl url=http://+:8001/SimpleHost/

  4. Restart Genetec Patroller™


You are now ready to connect to the Simple Host service.
