Linux Clients & relays.dat

(imported topic written by rclarke)

I know you can use a file called “besrelay.cfg” to force Windows BigFix clients to undertake initial registration via a designated relay rather than the BigFix server itself, but is there similar functionality available for Linux clients? Unfortunately I don’t have a Linux box to hand for testing purposes, so thought I would pose the question here.

Hey Rod,

The relays.dat in the BES Client for Windows works identically to the BES Agents for Linux/Unix/Mac.

Thanks Ben … in actual fact there is already a good knowledge base article on this topic, I just could not find it yesterday :wink:

If anyone else is interested it is available at
