Altova DiffDog Server 2024 

Network and Service Configuration (Windows)

Home Prev Top Next

During the installation of DiffDog Server, you can configure settings for accessing DiffDog Server via the network and for running DiffDog Server as a Windows service (screenshot below).

The settings listed below are available. Leave the default settings as they are if they are acceptable to you or if you are not sure about them. If you wish to change a setting, select its Change button (see screenshot above).


The port to use for unencrypted communication with DiffDog Server.

Windows service settings. These include:

oThe way DiffDog Server should start as a Windows service: automatic, on demand, delayed automatic, or disabled.

oThe user account to be used by DiffDog Server for the Windows service: Local System, Local Service, Network Service, or Other User. If you select Other User, you can set the username and password of this user, similar to how this is done in the Windows Services management console. Note that the selected user must have read/write access to C:\ProgramData\Altova. Otherwise, the installation or startup could fail.


You can change the settings after installation. To modify the Windows service configuration, open the Windows Services management console (by typing Services.msc in a command line window) and change the required service from there.
