Hello everyone,

When using LSAgent to remotely scan an asset that is off the main network, is there a way to have the agent scan the network of that remote PC in order to pick up the other assets on that specific remote network?

Thank you for any help in this!

Short answer: No.

LsAgent is a not a network scanning server. It will only scan the local machine itself.

What you're looking for is an additional scanning server. You basically install an additional scanning server on the remote network and connect it to the main database via an SQL server connection (which can be encrypted). For extra security, you can use a VPN between the scanning server and the database server.

A scanning server can scan assets in the network it is located in.
