Configuring eG Enterprise to Work in NATed Environments

It is straightforward to deploy the eG manager and agents for monitoring an Intranet where all the managed systems are in the same IP address range, and there are no firewalls/address translators between the managed devices/servers. In many large environments, there may be multiple demilitarized zones, with firewalls between them. Furthermore, the monitored network can span multiple geographical locations and can be connected via Virtual Private Networks. The devices/servers in each location can be in a different, often private, IP address range. This section covers how the eG manager and agents have to be configured to handle such environments.

There are various scenarios to be considered, depending on whether the manager and agents reside in network address translated environments.
