Create Scanning Agent

  1. In your Probely account, go to the top right dropdown and click Scanning Agents. If you do not see this option, contact your account owner.

  2. Click Add Agent.

  3. Set the name of the Scanning Agent and its access scope.

  4. Click Generate. You can change the name anytime.

  5. Copy the generated token and save it securely as, for security purposes, it will not be visible again.

Install Scanning Agent

The complete instructions on installing Scanning Agent on your network are available here. In any case, the fastest way to install Scanning Agent is to execute the following command in your terminal:

docker run -d \
--cap-add NET_ADMIN \
--device /dev/net/tun \
-e FARCASTER_AGENT_TOKEN=abcdef probely/farcaster-onprem-agent:v2

Where abcdef is the token generated in the process detailed above. After running the above command, the container should be running, and you're ready to instruct Probely to use the Agent to scan your target(s).

You can find a complete installation reference and source code for the installer at Probely's Github repositories.
