hy . try this command

OCSInventory.exe /XML="C:\report" /local="c:\report"

you must have the ocsinventory.exe in the path where you are in cmd
You can also just install the agent as normal .. and run the command. in an old version i just copied the directory  and it works portable.
kind regards

hy, i just copied the whole ocs-inventory program folder to a bootable Windows PE ISO .. so i can also make an inventory for system where i can't install the agent ...

It is clear that i will only get the operating system from the bootable ISo.. but i can get Bios, CPU, MAC Adresses of the Network card and so forth.

Then i just start

OCSInventory.exe /XML="C:\report" /local="c:\report"

where i adapt the path of course

Have you tried an firewall rule to allow Agent contacting to a server? You may also install some VPN connection on client (I use a Community version of OPENVPN it's quite secure and it's quite easy to configure)
