Scripting Question

Can the K1000 Agent upload a file from a client to the K1000 server?

12/16/2014 3116 views
Hi guys,

Just need clarification on this - is it possible to have the agent installed on a client machine upload a file from that machine back to the K1000 box (so I'm not pushing the file from K1000 down to the agent - I want to go the other direction). 

So I tell it a static location to obtain a file, and then have that download into the K1000. 

Any method to perform this?

  • This would require that we have TCP 445 (Windows File Sharing) available from the client to the K1000 correct? Unfortunately, we are an MSP, and our clients are outside our WAN connection, so the only ports we have available to work with is 443 and 52230.

    Any other methods or tricks?
    • how big is the file?
      • Should only be a couple of megabytes. 5-10 maybe?
      • do you need the entire file or are you looking for something within the file?
      • It would have to be the entire file.
    • The scripting action "Upload a file" will only use port 80 or 443 (if you enabled SSL).
      You can find the file in the inventory of the machine that uploaded it under Software-> Uploaded files.
      Kind regards,
      • Hi StockTrader - so the Upload a File will allow me to tell the agent to upload a file back to the K1000 server? I'm under Inventory -> Software, but can't seem to locate anything that says Uploaded Files. Any additional pointers? Feels like I'm close to an answer.
    • So..
      1-Create a script that uses the action UPLOAD A FILE
      2-execute the script
      3-when the script execution on the machine is complete go to the inventory of that device
      4-Look under the section Software -> Uploaded file of the inventory of the device where you executed the script.
      • Gotcha! Now I undestand! Thanks StockTrader!

        If I do this for let's say, 100 devices, is there anyway to download all those files at once from the K1000? Or will I need to click on each device and download the file each time?

        Thanks again!
      • As far as i know there is not a way to download them all together. Also as recent as version 5.5 there is not a way to delete these file from the kbox easily so be careful with uploading too many large files this way.

    • Uhmm...download them all together is a complex one...I need to work on it but I cannot guarantee that I will find a way....
  • Can someone provide an active link to the URL on top of this discussion? I am still looking for a solution to this issue.
