Web BRAdmin / BRAdmin Professional 3.x and Agents
Web BRAdmin / BRAdmin Professional 3.x is able to collect information regarding network-connected printer / multi-function devices operationg over a Local Area Network (LAN).
In order to collect information from outside a LAN and operate in a Wide Area Network (WAN) environment, Web BRAdmin / BRAdmin Professional 3.x needs to communicate with Agents (BRAgent software) that run on remote computers. These Agents collect device information from their LAN and on a regular basis pass it on to either Web BRAdmin or BRAdmin Professional 3.x. WebBRAdmin/ BRAdmin Professional 3.x then displays this information for reference and configuration.
However, if the PC running the Agent software is powered off, Web BRAdmin / BRAdmin Professional 3.x will not be able to collect the remote device information from the Agent. For this reason, we recommend that the Agent software is installed on a PC or server that will never be powered off.
Changing Agent settingsAgent settings can be changed in Windows® Control panel.
Here you can change such settings as the IP address of the machine running Web BRAdmin / BRAdmin Professional 3.x or the port number used to communicate between them.
