Player communication type

Table of contents
No headers

WPM offers two choices of configuration setup for how the player communicates with the WPM player.

Server-initiated communication

The server-initiated player is passive and waits for requests from the WPM server on a specified port. This requires firewall/NAT configurations on each Agent machine.
Player-initiated communication

Selecting this option allows the player to actively initiate communication with the WPM server on port 17782. Firewall/NAT configuration is simplified because the active agent actively connects to the poller server using a HTTP(S) protocol. MSPs and larger distributed deployments may prefer this option.
