Connector installation files need permission to the following locations:
Communication between JetPatch server and endpoints is based on one of the following three protocols:
- HTTPS (443) - Whenever an operation can be done using Web - it will.
- SSH (22) - For operations on Linux/Unix (required for installing and removing the connector on Linux/Unix machines)
- SMB2 (445) - For operations on Windows machines (required for installing and removing the connector on Windows machines)
These three protocols are used to perform one of the following operations:
Install, start, stop, status, uninstall connector, change config, refresh, retrieve log.
In addition, these protocols perform scripting and patching operations.
Each of these operations has it's own time-out (for example - time out for install operation is 5 minutes). In addition to the operation time-out - each driver (protocol) has its own growing-scale retry mechanism. Meaning that each failure will result in a longer suspension until the next try (for example - first suspension of 1 second, second suspension of 2 seconds, third of 4 seconds and so on up until 1 minute).
