You can change how the agent communicates with the Orion server. You can select server-initiated or agent-initiated communication.

  1. Log in to the host where the agent is installed.
  2. Start the Orion Agent Settings application in the Control Panel.
  3. Select an agent communication mode.
    • Agent-initiated communication: The agent initiates communication with the Orion server on port 17778. This port must be open on the Orion server firewall so the agent can connect. No change to the agent firewall is required.
    • Server-initiated communication: The agent waits for requests from the server on a specified port. This port must be open on the firewall of the agent computer so the Orion server can connect. No change to the Orion server firewall is required.
  4. Click OK.
