Connecting a Linux device to the Administration Server via a connection gateway
Dec 4, 2023
A connection gateway allows you to connect client devices from the demilitarized zone (DMZ) to Administration Server. Windows-based and Linux-based devices can act as a connection gateway. After you have connected and configured the connection gateway, you can use this gateway to connect a Linux device to the Administration Server. Follow the procedure below only after you have completed the main installation scenario.
To connect a Linux device to the Administration Server via a connection gateway, perform the following actions on this device:
- Download and install Network Agent on the Linux device.
- Run the Network Agent post-install script by executing the following command in the command prompt:
$ sudo /opt/kaspersky/klnagent64/lib/bin/setup/postinstall.pl
- On the step asking for the Network Agent mode, choose the Connect to server using connection gateway option and enter the address of connection gateway.
- Check the connection with Kaspersky Security Center and the connection gateway, by using the following command in the command prompt:
$ sudo /opt/kaspersky/klnagent64/bin/klnagchk
The address of connection gateway is displayed in the output.
Connecting a Linux device to the Administration Server via a connection gateway is completed. You can use this device to update distribution, for remote installation of applications, and to retrieve information about networked devices.
