Totally agree with lindaemon that this has and continues to be an excellent product!

It does not appear the Ubuntu repositories (maybe others) have not bee updated, any ETA?

Code: [Select]
- Web service proxy function in core agent now disabled by default
- Only HTTP and HTTPS are allowed in web service URLs

Please could you explain, how can I enable web service check from agent ?

After upgrade from 3.7 to 3.8, my web service dci polling has been stopped. I wonder if it is config changed issue ?

Hi,

you should add to config file of your agent the following line:
Code: [Select]
EnableWebServiceProxy = yes
This change was done for improving security. Before 3.8 read access to agent allows you to do port scan (by requesting URLs with different service types and port numbers) and even local file access (using file:// URLs).

Best regards,
Victor

Thanks for reply, I have added above config to the agent file, but realized still not recieving polling data. 

But after adding this config to master server's agent file, polling is started. 

Is that result normal ?

You should add it to config of agent that is used for web service query. By default it is local agent on NetXMS server machine.

Best regards,
