NCPA - Agent Passive Service/ Encrypted

Postby charlie126 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 7:35 am


I am using - Active Checks, would it be best practice to disable the 'NCPA Passive - ncpapassive' service on the Windows Servers. Is there any added value in leaving this service running by default?

Also am i correct in saying that when using to perform Active Checks, the communication is TLSv1.2 encrypted by default?

If NCPA isn't sending any passive checks then the passive service can be disabled.

Yes, it does TLSv.12 by default. In the ncpa.cfg you'll see:

ssl_version = TLSv1_2
