    Hello Luca,

    You can try to send any files through the Tentacle protocol by using this command:

    If you don’t receive any message it means that it has been sent.

    Also you can check that the file arrived at /var/spool/pandora/data_in

    tentacle_client -t 10 -r 3 -a <PandoraIP> -p 41121 <path/to/File>

    Thanks for the answer. I have test with you command and i don’t receive any message: good!

    I have not the possibility to connect via ssh to pandora server but only via https.

    I ask if gui part I have to do something or I already see the agent created because i don’t see the agent name via GUI.

    Thanks in advance

      Via GUI now i see the agent but list of modules is empty. How configure the module for Host Alive for example? Via agent side or pandora server side?

      Thanks

      Hello,

      If the Agent is executed and the configuration file (pandora_agent.conf) is pointing to the Server IP in the right parameter it should receive the XML and create the Agent with the name you specified in the conf, or with a random name in case you didn’t specified any name.

      It is important that the Agent is able to reach the PandoraFMS server as you already checked it does.

      You can review the Log pandora_agent.log to see if there’s any error messages in case you don’t receive the XML.

      Kind regards,

      Sergio B.
