The XIA Configuration Client does not require any additional software to be installed on remote machines for the collection of data as it uses WMI, Remote Registry, SQL XMO and other remote technologies to perform these tasks. These technologies require certain levels of permissions on the remote machine and certain TCP ports to be open. 

Where these requirements are prohibitive - perhaps because of firewall or user account constraints the XIA Configuration Local Service can be installed on these machines.

The XIA Configuration Local Service 

  • Runs on a single TCP Port that can be defined by the Administrator.

  • Runs as a Windows service under the Local System Account.

  • Is configured using Group Policy.

NOTE: The XIA Configuration Local Service has been deprecated and it is recommended that items are scanned using the XIA Configuration Client remotely using PowerShell remoting.
