"\\server-it-asset-tool\client\ClientIAT.exe " server=192.168.0.100 port=18888 senddelay=3600000 admin=Brian
This row launches the client from network shared folder and then the client sends the data that it collects to port 18888 of server 192.168.0.100 every hour. In addition will be logged everylogin by Brian.
Once the initial three minutes have elapsed, the client will begin to analyze the Computer and then display a report of the data collected and sent to the IT Asset Tool Server.
As best practice, we suggest to share the client application (requested procedure during the installation) and execute it with a windows group policy.
IT Asset Tool Client and Server need an exception of firewall port to comunicate between each other. By default the Server listens to the Tcp Port 18888 but can be customized.
