My client was "helping" me and tried unsuccessfully to install the agent on the test machine. There was a record in the database, but no agent installed on the thin client.
Jeff.Keyeswe are adding the feature to install agents via the network discovery module. Should be included in a build this week
Jeff.Keyes- but you could set it up to do class A if you'd like.
Jeff.KeyesThe scanning we do in KND is 3 parts
1. A light weight ping scan (using nmap) on whatever range you give it
On discovered devices
2. A deeper port scan
3. An SNMP walk attempt (using whatever credentials we have)
The ping scan can be configured to span ranges, etc....its just something that must be configured.
We don't really do anything to make that process simpler today other than (as you say) brute force looking for all addresses in that range.
I really like the idea of interrogating the routing tables...but i thought that would require some kind of security.
Assuming the devices have agents on them, we could do some really interesting things..but then...they already have agents on them....
