    wake up agent

      Hi

      I would like to be able to wake up agent and get it to report full status / dl-tasks from my helpdesk-system.

      So, is there any way to send a http request to the agent using wake up -port and then some parameters?

          Hi,

           

          I do not think that the agent would accept non-encrypted traffic from any client. Rather, what I assume, you could send a script on to clients that forces the McAfee Agent to contact the ePO server:

           

          "(McAfee Agent install folder)\CMDAGENT.EXE /p"

           

          where p is

           

          S  - Collect and send properties and events

          C  - Check new policies

          E  - Enforce policies

           

          Is that what you had in mind?

            Yes thats what i found out so far.

            But i was hoping there was some smart workaround.

              The only http request an agent will accept outside of ePO is the one which will display the agent log as XML via the agent wakeup port.

              For example http://192.168.1.1:8081

               

              Even this can be denied by agent policy or limited to being accepted only from the ePO server.

              It's a security feature, and is unlikely to change.

               

              Rgds,
