Testing Agent Connectivity

< Guide Menu
Table of Contents

When deploying a Quasar Scan Agent manually, the Agent has an option to test connectivity to its configured Quasar Server.

  • Once the server setting is set in local.cfg, run the following command: quasarscan.exe commtest
  • The agent will attempt to connect to the server and send a ping message. If a ping message is received, the agent output will look like the following:
Agent Foreground Comms Test
  • If connectivity fails, the foregrounded agent will wait forever. Halt it with Ctrl+C If connectivity fails, ensure TCP ports 55555, 55557 and 55559 are open through to the quasar server’s host machine. (Quasar V3 and V4 – current)

On some Windows versions, you may need to close and reopen the command prompt terminal window.
