This topic only applies to users who run:

  • Windows 2012 Datacenter
  • Windows 2012 R2 Standard
  • Windows 2012 Standard
  • Windows 2016 Full Desktop

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

For Windows 2012 users, when you install the Armor Agent, the corresponding Trend Micro agent may cause your system to reboot. Trend Micro is currently researching this issue.

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

 

For Amazon Web Services users who:

  • Use Elastic Beanstalk to run their instance's applications, and
  • Run Windows 2012 R2,

Review the following example to understand how to install the Anywhere agent. Afterwards, you can skip to the Test your connection step.

files:
  "c:\\Windows\\Temp\\armor-setup.exe":
    source: https://get.core.armor.com/latest/armor-setup.exe
commands:
  armoragentinstall:
    test: if not exist 'c:\\.armor\\opt\\armor.exe' exit 0
    command: c:\\Windows\\Temp\\armor-setup.exe /verysilent /license=AAAA1-A11AA-AA1AA-AAAAA-1AAAA
    ignoreErrors: false
    waitAfterCompletion: 5

You must replace AAAA1-A11AA-AA1AA-AAAAA-1AAA with your specific license key.


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

Description

Pre-Installation

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

[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

You can use these scripts to:

  • Verify that your environment is compatible with Armor Anywhere
  • Install the agent
[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. 

[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.

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

telnet 146.88.106.210 443


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

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


Step 4: Review the status of the Armor Anywhere agent
