Re: Can OM monitors the Agent behind NAT

Yes you can monitor the agent in the NAT Environment.. 

 

There is a Firewall Concept Guide ( http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM829492 ), you can refer for the details on how to achieve it .. 

 

Hope this helps ..

Re: Can OM monitors the Agent behind NAT

well, to answer the question, as machani said, the firewall guide will give the exact details.

 

when i read this queston, i remembered my old manager used to say this when i asked any question about mgmt server to agent communication..

As long as bi-directional communication between mgmt server and agent on port 383 and 

the dns resolution is perfect, we can monitor the agent.

 

so, whether NAT'ted or not is not a problem. bi-directional communication on the port 383 is the requirement.
