The server does not detect clients (Agent)

Im intalled OCS Server on 2 environments:

1) OCS Server 2.5 on Centos7 with a Windows 10 agent in the same network without firewall with Windos 10 Client (Agent vs 2.4.0)

2) Installed OCs Server / Xampp vs 2.1.2 on Windows 10 and install OCs Agent vs 2.4.0 on the same machines. Local host

In my environments, my server does not detect the client (agent)?


Thanks regards

hy, first of all the agent does not send the inventory immediately. The client calculates a random number to create a counter. This counter well be decreased.. every second, and after the counter reaches 0 the clients sends the inventory.The reason behind this is, the 1000 of clients could not DDOS the server beause every client has different counters.

But you can decrase the intervall to contact  the server in the following server siede setting

(Configuration > Server > PROLOG_FREQ)

or hook the setting to report the inventory mmediately during the graphical setup of the client.

You also have to use the right url in the client

use http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/ocsinventory

and NOT http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/ocsreports

immediately send the inventory is also possible  with the following method

doubleclick on

C:\Program Files (x86)\OCS Inventory Agent\OCSInventory.exe


Hope this helps
