Microsoft View on KMS server:
- How KMS Works
- Planning a KMS Deployment
KMS activates computers on a local network, eliminating the need for individual computers to connect to Microsoft. To do this, KMS uses a client–server topology. KMS client computers can locate KMS host computers by using a Domain Name System (DNS) or a static configuration. KMS clients contact the KMS host by using remote procedure call (RPC). KMS can be hosted on computers that are running the Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems.
How KMS Works:
KMS activation requires TCP/IP connectivity. By default, KMS hosts and client computers use DNS to publish and find the KMS service. The default settings can be used, which require little to no administrative action, or KMS hosts and client computers can be manually configured based on network configuration and security requirements.
For Activating the First KMS Host:
KMS hosts on the network need to install a KMS key, and then be activated with Microsoft. Installation of a KMS key enables the Key Management Service on the KMS host. After installing the KMS key, complete the activation of the KMS host by telephone or online. Beyond this initial activation, a KMS host does not communicate any information to Microsoft.
Users concern about it:
KMS Activation of office 2019. The person who activates the office 2019 by this process is putting his sensitive data at risk. The PC regularly i.e for every 7 days, connects to KMS Server. Your sensitive data may be sent to the KMS server. The develop may install some malware into your pc with that code.
- KMS is usually a corporate in-house situation, so tracking is irrelevant.
- If you happened to buy an Office (Pro) license that requires KMS activation you most likely have a bootleg copy.
- Your computer sends a license validation request to the KMS Server. The server needs to get back in touch with you, so it needs to know where you are.
- KMS Server has no other rights or privileges on your computer.
