Virtual Asset

A Virtual Asset is a device which doesn’t have an xtna-agent running, but instead is made available via a Linux Asset running the xtna-agent. We call this Linux Asset the “providing Asset”.

The Virtual Asset needs to have an IP which is reachable by the providing Asset (usually from the same local network), this IP goes into the public IP Field of its configuration. Currently, we grant access to such a Virtual Asset to all clients which have access to the providing Asset and to all its peered Assets. You can still limit the ports which are accessible on the Virtual Asset by configuring services, the same way you can configure services on an Asset.

Typical use cases are devices where you can’t install our xtna-agent but still want to make them available to the clients, e.g. Printer, NAS, IP-Camera or industrial devices.
