The eXplorer Embedded Data Collection Agent (Embedded DCA) allows all the printing devices in a company’s or office’s network to be monitored, using a simple Embedded App installed on a multifunction Samsung XOA/E, Kyocera HyPAS, HP FutureSmart, Lexmark eSF.
The use of Embedded Data Collection Agent in MPS Monitor ensures that end users and Dealers experience maximum availability of data, allowing remote management and an efficient and accurate control of all aspects of operations, from page volumes produced to consumables supply and replacement needs, without having to install any software or use resources on the customer’s systems (PCs or Servers).
The information is transmitted to the Server components using the HTTP / HTTPS protocol. All eXplorer DCA versions use the SNMP protocol for reading. It is a prerequisite for the service that the software eXplorer DCA has Internet access to the Server components via HTTP or HTTPS.
Printer data collection is performed using the software Embedded eXplorer DCA, which has the following technical details and functionality:
No access can be made, in any case, from outside towards the internal network of the Customer. Consequently, the eXplorer DCA installation within the customer network does not involve any risk to the safety of the network.
Embedded eXplorer DCA Mac/Linux is certified on the following operating systems:
eXplorer DCA must be hosted on a system that has stable access via HTTPS or HTTP (port 443 or 80 outgoing), even if only to the domains https://*.mpsmonitor.com and https://*.abassetmanagement.com
Access to other sites or Internet addresses is not required, nor is it necessary to enable other outgoing protocols.
No input access is required, nor is the activation of any communication protocol from the outside to the inside of the Customer’s network.
Therefore, no specific configuration is required on the Firewalls or on the Client’s security infrastructure.
