hi all,

I log in to WEB_3 and I see the log (/var/adm/)

Nov 21 10:08:13 Frontmail03 CiscoSecurityAgent[6886]: [ID 702911] Failed transaction, url=https://qtsc-mc:5401/csamc52/agent, curlerr=7 (Connect failed).

Nov 21 10:08:13 Frontmail03 CiscoSecurityAgent[6886]: [ID 702911] Registering with server CSA MC, Failure (1)

Nov 21 10:08:13 Frontmail03 CiscoSecurityAgent[6886]: [ID 702911] Will retry to register in 3600 sec (Poll to expedite it)

I have a license for 10 agents, I have already installed license at CSA MC.

If you know why the host can't register to CSA MC, please answer me early.

Thank you very much,

Best regards,

first install the agent kit in the client from mc and restart it. After that automatically registered to the server. When it register, then u can only add it to the group.

hi all,

I use FWSM, now, I must open which services or port from CSA MC to CSA agents? So, CSA Agents can connect to CSA MC.

Thank you

Access to the CSA MC from the client on a DMZ requires the following ports to be open on the Firewall:

Source Destination Port Protocol

80 TCP

443 TCP

5401 TCP

5401 UDP

Note: port 443 is for management only and sends you to the login page.

Hope this helps.
