Manual:The Dude/Agenci

Z MikroTik Wiki

Agents are other Dude servers that can be used as intermediaries for device monitoring. They are especially useful if you want to monitor devices within different locations, not all of which are directly reachable.

Note: As the most simple example - you could have a Dude server monitoring your office computers, and when you would want to monitor devices in your branch office, you would install the Dude server package on the branch office Gateway router, and then specify this device as an agent. This agent would then be able to scan and monitor devices behind itself, inside the private network.

You can specify Agents when using the Server settings, Device discovery and also when setting up devices manually.

Clicking the browse button ... next to the Agent dropdown in both of those places allows you to add and edit agents.
