CommView® Remote Agent
CommView Remote Agent is a special, optional add-on for CommView designed for remote network traffic monitoring.
Being a remote LAN probe, it allows CommView users to capture network traffic on any computer where Remote Agent is running, regardless of the computer's physical location. This new, unique technology broadens your horizons: you are no longer limited by your LAN segment or personal computer. If you are in Tokyo and want to troubleshoot a complex software installation in Amsterdam, just install CommView Remote Agent on the target system and watch the important TCP/IP traffic from the comfort of your office, as if you were there!
After the installation and simple configuration, CommView Remote Agent is ready to accept connections from CommView. Once the connection is established and the authentication is successful, CommView Remote Agent is ready to capture packets in its network segment and transmit them to CommView. The transmitted packets are compressed to save bandwidth and encrypted to ensure safe transmission over insecure network channels. CommView has a flexible system of filters that is capable of filtering out all undesired packets, thus minimizing the bandwidth used for the TCP link between CommView and CommView Remote Agent.
CommView Remote Agent is an indispensable tool for networking, software, and security professionals that can solve a wide range of problems, such as monitoring multi-segment LANs or remote software and network troubleshooting. A number of case studies describe real-world applications of CommView Remote Agent in business, government, and education sectors.
