Communication between devices and Scout Server

The certificate-based management protocol ensures secure communication between Scout Server and devices. For further information, see Certificate-based management protocol in the Installation guide.

During system start, the eLux devices connect to their Scout Server and verify if their configuration data is up-to-date. Updated data may concern device configuration, application definitions, files defined for transfer and advanced file entries. For further information about identifying and transferring updated configuration data, see Configuration method.

The communication between a device and the server may proceed in three ways: 

Updated configuration data can relate to device configuration (setup), application definition, files configured for transfer and advanced file entries.

During operation of a user's device there is no data exchange between the Scout Server and device. During shutdown, the device reports its current status to the Scout Server (except for VPN connections).
