I don't understand why everyone is running it this way, anyway. It's *much* easier to just piggyback onto an existing site that supports HTTPS by setting the WebServerListenUri to a subdirectory on the site (that doesn't already exist), such as:

key="WebServerListenUri" value="https://example.com:443/support/"

I suspect most people that have actually bought this software are running a server and at least one site, so this process integrates the ScreenConnect directly into the site as easily as changing this value.

Specifics here:

How does Piggybacking actually work? Does this mean that IIS is already running on the server? If it running, then isn't it already listening on that port?

yes and yes. it's a function of .net and IIS - and by far the simplest way to set it up. i spent *hours* trying to get SC to work via SSL when running on its own, but the piggybacking option (once i finally discovered it) took literally 10 seconds to setup. the hardest part was browsing to the web.config file to make it work.
