Agent Gateways are new in Recast Software Version 5.0.
A Recast Agent Gateway is an on-premises component that connects your Recast Management Server to your Recast Agents. An Agent Gateway lets you to manage your endpoints at scale by providing a secure communications path for:
- Agent authentication and authorization
- Agent licensing
- Directing Recast actions to Agents
- Extending Agent connectivity to the Internet
- Connecting Agents with other Recast components
Multiple Agent Gateways can be added, meaning that there's no limit to the number of Agents that can connect to your Recast Management Server. Internet-connected devices that are not on your local network can connect to the Agent Gateway, allowing you to run Recast actions against them, without the need for a Cloud Management Gateway (CMG).
An Agent Gateway is automatically deployed and authorized when you install Recast Management Server. You can also install an Agent Gateway on a separate server. Agent Gateway software is available from the Recast Portal.
The Agent Gateway SQLite file is located at
C:\Users\Recast Agent Gateway\AppData\Roaming\Recast Software\Recast Agent Gateway
You can view and edit Agent Gateways in the Recast Management Server interface by navigating to Administration > Agent Gateways.
By default, the one Agent Gateway added automatically during Recast Management Server installation will appear on the Agent Gateways page.
Details shown include the Computer Name, whether an Agent Gateway is Connected or Authorized, and the Agent Gateway software Version.
