Before you begin, Armor recommends that you pre-installation information, including firewall rules. To learn more, see ANYWHERE Pre-Installation.

Before you install the Armor Anywhere agent, you must remove any previously installed anti-virus software, such as Trend Micro, McAfee, etc. Afterwards, you must reboot your system. 

Step 1: Locate the Armor Anywhere agent


Step 2: Download and install the Armor Anywhere agent

There are three types of scripts that you can use to install the agent:

Script type



You can use these scripts to verify that your environment is compatible with Armor Anywhere. These scripts will not install the agent.

sudo curl -sSL | bash /dev/stdin
Pre-installation and installation

You can use these scripts to:

  • Verify that your environment is compatible with Armor Anywhere
  • Install the agent
sudo curl -sSL | bash /dev/stdin -l AAAA1-A11AA-AA1AA-AAAAA-1AAA

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

sudo curl -sSL | bash /dev/stdin -l AAAA1-A11AA-AA1AA-AAAAA-1AAA -s

In the above scripts, replace AAAA1-A11AA-AA1AA-AAAAA-1AAAwith your specific license key.

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.

The following example tests connectivity to over 443/tcp:

telnet 443

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

new-object System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient('', 443)

Step 4: Review the status of the Armor Anywhere agent
