The Discovery-Agent (Windows) is optional to use for the following situations:
- Discover data from systems that are not always online (like Office-Computers or Notebooks)
- Collect data from Windows System without opening the inbound WMI Port & the Dynamic DCOM Ports
Inside of the "Discovery_x.x.x.zip" you can find the "Discovery_Agent_Setup.msi" Installer package.
Just install the Discovery Agent and make sure that the Firewall will accept connections from the inbound Port 51337.
For collecting the data configure the Optional Agent Settings of the Discovery tool.
The file transfer between the Discovery-Tool and the Windows Agent is AES 128 encrypted.
For each transfer both tools are exchanging a session key for the encryption.
