Access targets on different networks

If you have targets, controllers, and servers on different networks that cannot directly contact each other,you can install and configure gateway support. After you install, you can configure your network to enable connections to be established. For more information about installing the gateway support, see the BigFix® Remote Control Installation Guide..

The Remote Control gateway supports different types of connections
Inbound connections
Configure these connections for the gateway to accept connections from endpoints, controllers, and other gateways.
Gateway connections
Configure a gateway to establish a permanent connection with another gateway.
Endpoint connections
Configure the gateway to locate endpoints from which a request is received.
Tunnel Connections
Used to facilitate TCP connections to the Remote Control server from the target.
The gateway administrator defines the connections that are required for gateways, in the configuration file.
