Manual:The Dude v6/Agents
Agents are other Dude servers that can be used as intermediaries for device monitoring. They are especially useful if you want to monitor devices within different locations, not all of which are directly reachable.
Clicking the browse button ... next to the Agent dropdown in both of those places allows you to add and edit agents.
RouterOS as Agent
To scan and monitor a network which is behind another router, in some other location, it is possible to install the Dude Server/Agent onto a RouterOS device.
To do this, you need to install the Dude package onto RouterOS:
- Download package from the MikroTik software download page
- Upload the package to RouterOS with Winbox, Webfig or FTP
- Reboot the router to install the package
- After install is complete, connect to the Dude server IP from the Dude windows client application
