I'm the author of an Android app which acts as agent for Android devices. (
Actually, check_mk server can query android devices only when they are on
the same local network(or VPN).
I'm thinking about how to allow check_mk server to interact with android
devices when they're not on the same network. The main problem is that the
connection is established by check_mk server, not by the agent (in that
case, it would be sufficient to know the public IP of check_mk server and
add few rules on firewall).
Some possible strategies:
- establish a VPN connection between androdi device and check_mk server. It
requires a VPN connection always available, lot of configurations..
- use SNMP traps in order to send data from android device to check_mk
server, but it requires lot of efforts (actually I'm providing a check_mk
agent, not an SNMP agent)
Have any suggestion about how to overcome this problem.
