Adding a destination

If you installed the WinCollect 10 agent by using the "Quick Installation," a destination called JSA was created during the installation. You can also add a new destination.

  1. From the Agent Configuration menu, select Destinations.
  2. On the Destinations window, click Add in the Destinations section.
  3. Enter the following required information:
    Option Description
    Name Give your destination a name.
    Device Address Use the DNS name of your JSA appliance. If DNS is not configured, you can use the IP address.
    Protocol The default is set to TCP.

    If you want to specify a secondary destination, you must select the TCP Protocol.

    For more information about other optional parameters, see the "Destination parameters" table.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Deploy your changes.
