Communication between Execution server and Agent

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Communication between Execution server and Agent

    Posted 04-14-2015 06:18 AM

    Hello,

            As my understanding goes the Agent communicates with the Execution server using a TCP port. 6600 if it is left as default.

    Can I enable SSH keys communication between the Agent and the execution server?

    Can someone please let me know if there is a way to configure the same.

     

    Thanks and Warm Regards,

    Hrishi

    Hello Hrishi

    If you referring to SSL keys than the answer is yes , RA provide internal keys which you can use for secure communication , another options is to use your own certificates , the procedure how to use your own certificates should be in RA documentation

     

    Thanks

    Thanks Jacky,

                No i was referring to setting up the communication using SSH instead of TCP. But i guess that isnt possible.

    Thanks for your response.

    Hi,

     

         You can use the SSH action to run commands from an RA agent to a SSH server, but as you mentioned the communication between NES and agent has to use the proprietary protocol called Nimi.
