Introduction

The Windows Gateway is a Windows application. It supports limited functionality compared to the Gateway Appliance.

The Windows Gateway should be used only in the following scenarios:

  • To monitor network devices in small office environments.
  • To discover Windows servers.

Monitoring network devices in small office environments

Small office IT environments may not have a hypervisor to run the Gateway Appliance.

The Windows Gateway can be used to discover and monitor network resources (switches, routers, firewalls, etc.) in such environments.

A single instance of the Windows Gateway can manage up to 30 network resources.

Discovering Windows servers

In IT environments with Windows running on bare metal, Windows servers may need to be discovered individually. The Windows Gateway can be used to discover Windows servers in these environments.

A single instance of the Windows Gateway can discover up to 500 Windows servers.
