Agent Communication Over The Internet
I am currently investigating an issue and have a working theory I wanted to run by the forums.
First, we are running SMP 7.1. Our public website recently went down with a flood of requests to our internal management server address. I believe this could be caused by the agent installed on clients that work remotely and are not on our network attempting to report in to the server. The hosting company logs regular requests to that server on their end. I was hoping to simply prevent agents from attempting to contact the server when off the network and on the internet.
Any help or tips would be appreciated. Thanks.
