Commonly asked questions

How do I get started?

After installing Network Olympus, you can start from the Network tree dashboard or go to the Scanner. A few demo devices have already been added to the tree automatically. They are placed in groups Local Network and Remote (Demo). If you need to just add a few devices, create a group in the network tree and add devices using the context menu. If you want to scan the local network and add all the discovered devices to the tree, go to the Scanner  panel and scan the domain or IP range using the Scanner status widget.

To check specific parameters or device uptime, you need to add sensors. Sensors can be added using the network tree context menu or from the Scenario builder dashboard. From here, you can also add notifications and actions that can be performed depending on the monitoring results.

The other dashboards will help you keep an eye on sensors and executed actions and track their stats. The most comprehensive information on all elements and their status is available in the Activity log.

How can I find which port numbers are used for WinBase & FileSystem checks, so I can configure the firewall?

WinBase sensors use the RPC protocol. Make sure that TCP port 135 is open. When using Windows Firewall, it’s enough to enable a special exception entitled “Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI-In)”.

FileSystem sensors use the SMB and NetBIOS protocols. They can be allowed by enabling the File and Printer Sharing exception in the Windows Firewall or TCP ports 445 and 139 in other firewalls.
