I have requested the removal of the "Open Source"-tag. Only the client is open source, the server is **not ** open source. In an application where the server is mandatory this tag is very misleading.

Open Source code

Where is the code if it is open source?

The license is MPL (Mozilla Public License).

Hi !
You can find the source code of the client here : https://www.dwservice.net/en/licenses-sources.html
Only the client (agent) is open source, not the server part.
They also want planning to develop a simplified node version, which can be installed on a personal server : https://www.dwservice.net/en/security.html

A service can be closed, yet its infrastructure runs on open source. In this case, the service is closed, but they use open source components on the infrastructure, and that is the magic behind their service. Everyone can use the open source components they are using, but not everyone can package it into a service that runs smoothly, like DWservice and other membership-based opensource project.
And as mentioned, the client is open source for the public, and that is where you want to do the audit if you run it on a company. the agent is the key between you and them, if that is not open source, you wouldnt want to trust them. (as in teamviewer and such)
