Best Practices Question

What's the best way to connect external devices to a K1000 box on a secure network?

07/05/2015 2518 views
We have several workstations that are not connected to our network, but we would like to to inventory, do remote access, and deploy software to them while making sure our K1000 box is secure. Would replication be our best bet or use could services? Is there documentation that I can look at.

You can enable SSL and open the ports needed for the agent to communicate to the kbox through your firewall...

  • This is possible. Version 6.4 of the K1000 will likely introduce TLS as well.
    • testing 6.4 and they are now using openBSD 10 so it uses TLS by default.

Depending how they are able to connect the K1000.
Replication only have all files locally so you don't deploy over the WAN connection.
VPN would be a good thing to get the remote systems to your network.

    We've got a KKE session that details this exact process, called KACE Appliances - Managing External Machines.  You can find it, and many more tutorial videos, at the below link.
