Procedure – Retrieve the DNS Listener’s API Key

  1. Click the NodeWorx menu item if it is not already open.
  2. Click the API Key menu item.
  3. If an API Key is not already displayed, click the  button.
  4. Copy the API key text blob to your local clipboard as you will need the copied API key for the next step.

The following are to be performed on the Server whose DNS Zones will be listened to.
  1. Click the System Services menu item if it is not already open.
  2. Click the DNS Server menu item if it is not already open.
  3. Click the Synchronization menu item.
