themeMidnight
[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12; Invoke-WebRequest https://get.core.armor.com/latest/armor_agent.ps1 -outfile armor_agent.ps1 ; .\armor_agent.ps1
Pre-Installation and Installation

  • Install the agent
Code Block

[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12; Invoke-WebRequest https://get.core.armor.com/latest/armor_agent.ps1 -outfile armor_agent.ps1 ; .\armor_agent.ps1 -license AAAA1-A11AA-AA1AA-AAAAA-1AAA
Installation

You can use these scripts to install the agent. These scripts will not verify your environment for compatibility. 

Code Block
themeMidnight
[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12; Invoke-WebRequest https://get.core.armor.com/latest/armor_agent.ps1 -outfile armor_agent.ps1 ; .\armor_agent.ps1 -license AAAA1-A11AA-AA1AA-AAAAA-1AAA -silent


Step 3: Test your connection

After you install the agent, Armor recommends that you test the connection for each configured firewall rule.

To verify connectivity to an Armor service endpoint, use the telnet command.

Tip

The following example tests connectivity to api.armor.com over 443/tcp:

Code Block
themeMidnight
telnet 146.88.106.210 443


For Windows systems without the telnet feature installed, you can also use PowerShell:

Code Block
themeMidnight
new-object System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient('146.88.106.210', 443)
