Agent initiated communication to ePO

Jump to solution

Hi all, I've had an unusual request to setup a couple of our systems so that the endpoint initiates all network communication to the ePO. Is this possible to setup? The reason for this request is that we have limited bandwidth at the specific site where we have these systems and they would prefer that we control exactly when communication happens to these devices (rather than have an always-open connection). Any suggestions appreciated, I'm not sure how we could accomplish this..

No, that's not correct, I'm afraid. ePO communications are based on the agent initiating communication: the server does not contact the clients unless explicitly instructed to do so. From your first question, you don't need to change anything - ePO already works this way

By default, ASCI will set to 60 minutes where communication will start from the client machine.

To initiate communication from client machine, please open Agent monitor window and click on tabs 1- collect and send props, 2- enforce policies etc.

Thanks, I guess I can turn off the agent-to-server communication, but I'll still have ePO connecting to the system at the policy enforcement interval correct? My question I suppose is if I can change this policy enforcement interval so that it only initiates from the endpoint.
