Connection settings analysis
- To check the status of the ports, execute the command:
- The Network Agent connects to the Administration Server via ports TCP 13000 and TCP 14000.
- The Connection gateway connects to the Administration Server via port TCP 13000.
- Use the klnagchk utility for connection diagnostics using these instructions. First run the utility on the device where the Administration Agent is installed in connection gateway mode, and then run it on the device on a managed device which will be connected through the gateway.
