An agent is a software application that provides a communication channel between the Orion server and a Windows or Linux computer. Agents are used as an alternative to WMI or SNMP to provide information about your selected key devices and applications.

With passive communication, the agent waits for requests from the server on the default port of 17790. (This can be changed if needed.) This port must be opened on the firewall of the agent computer so the server can connect. No change to the server firewall is required.
