ManagementStudio supports the configuration where surveys can be accessed from within the local network, or from an external network (the internet). This requires some additional configuration:

  • A new IIS server with a public facing IP address
  • ManagementStudio to be installed on the new IIS server, configured to only respond to survey requests
  • Network connectivity between the new IIS server and the ManagementStudio SQL database (typically by opening port 1433 on the firewall)
  • A new public DNS entry to resolve the survey URL to the new IIS server public IP address

If this configuration is required please raise a support ticket or speak to your ManagementStudio representative.
