Host Alive on Remote Network - Cybertaff - 06-01-2020

Hi all,
Looking for some guidance on checking to see if agents are up on remote networks.  I am using PandoraFMS Community on my local network and have added the Host Alive module to monitor if my local servers are up or not and this is working fine.
How would I do something similiar on a remote network as the ICMP packets will not get through the firewalls of the remote networks? I am currently monitoring several servers at remote locations using Tentacle and this is working fine so is it possible to use this in some way?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Chris

Hello

I think that what you are looking for could be a software agent in proxy mode, this kind of agents serve to forward between different networks the information reported by the remote agents, I leave you a link to the wiki so you can get more information and configure it if that is what you are looking for.
