July 3, 2024

ID 201947

The Network Agent distribution kit includes the klmover utility, which is intended for managing the connection with the Administration Server.

After installation of the Network Agent, the utility is located in the /opt/kaspersky/klnagent/bin directory in 32-bit operating systems and in the /opt/kaspersky/klnagent64/bin directory in 64-bit operating systems. Depending on the utilized keys, the Network Agent performs the following actions when started:

  • Connects Network Agent to the Administration Server with the specified settings.
  • Writes to an event log file or displays the operation results.

Utility syntax

klmover [-logfile <file name>] {-address <server address>} [-pn <port number>] [-ps <SSL port number>] [-nossl] [-cert <path to the certificate file>] [-silent] [-dupfix]

Description of keys

  • -logfile <file name> – write the results of running the utility to the specified file. If this key is not used, the results and error messages are displayed in stdout.
  • -address <server address> – address of the Administration Server used for the connection. This can be the IP address, NetBIOS, or DNS name of the device.
  • -pn <port number> – number of the port over which a non-encrypted connection to the Administration Server is established. Port 14000 is used by default.
  • -ps <SSL port number> – number of the SSL port over which the encrypted connection to the Administration Server is established using the SSL protocol. Port 13000 is used by default.
  • -nossl – use a non-encrypted connection to the Administration Server. If this key is not specified, the Agent is connected to the Administration Server over the encrypted SSL protocol.
  • -cert <path to certificate file> – use the specified certificate file for access authentication to the new Administration Server. If the key is not in use, Network Agent receives a certificate upon the first connection to the Administration Server.
  • -silent – start the utility in non-interactive mode. Using this key may be useful if, for example, the utility is started from a startup script during user registration.
  • -dupfix – this key is used if the Network Agent installation method differs from the installation within the distribution kit; for example, if the Network Agent was restored from a disk image.
  • -cloningmode 1 – switch to cloning mode.
  • -cloningmode 0 – switch from cloning mode.
