Configuring a DCOM interface to the PATROL Agent

This section describes how to set up the PATROL Agent for use with the Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) programming interface. The DCOM interface (a tool for Windows) provides developers of Component Object Model (COM) compatible applications access to data collected by one or more PATROL Agent.

Tasks to configure a DCOM interface to the PATROL Agent

Before you can use your application (DCOM client) to access data on one or more PATROL Agents (DCOM servers), you need to perform one or both of the following tasks depending on your environment:

  • Configure the computers hosting PATROL Agents (DCOM servers)
    You can do this either by setting the PATROL Agent COM configuration variables or by running the Microsoft DCOM configuration utility.
  • Configure the computers hosting your application (DCOM clients) by running the PATROL Client Configuration Utility

For additional information about programming using the COM and DCOM protocols, refer to the Microsoft website at


The DCOM interface is only available on Windows.
