NetBeez Agents can establish a secure web-socket (port 443) to connect to the NetBeez server. Agents can still connect via the TCP/SSL Socket if desired. TCP Socket connections are still supported so no immediate change is required. If a Web-socket connection is not able to be established the agent will fall back to using a TCP/SSL socket connection.
Caching of Test Results
The current implementation of the web-socket doesn't support caching of test results upon disconnection of the agent from the dashboard. If you wish to cache the test results data when the agent is unreachable, please use the TCP/SSL socket method.
How to enable Web-sockets
The BeezKeeper has web-sockets disabled by default. To enable this feature, contact NetBeez support to have web-sockets enabled - firstname.lastname@example.org.
