Getting started

Step 1: Install and configure Connect

Install and configure Tanium Connect.

For more information, see Installing Tanium Connect. If you upgrade from a previous version, see Upgrade Connect.

Step 1: Enable your destinations

Before your connections can successfully send data to a destination, your Tanium Cloud instance, CMP network egress allow list, and network allow list must be configured. Note the following:

  • Sign in to the CMP and configure a network egress allow list rule for each destination fully qualified domain name (FQDN) and associated port. For more information on configuring the network egress allow list, see Tanium Cloud Deployment Guide: Configuring network egress allow list rules in the CMP.
  • Tanium Cloud does not support non-TLS plaintext HTTP URLs.
  • Tanium does not support sending data over TCP port 25 outbound. If you create a rule with external access for an SMTP email server destination (default TCP port 465 or TCP port 587), you can only associate the port with 1 FQDN.

  • For other destinations, you can reuse a port for multiple destination FQDNs.

  • Your Tanium Cloud instance has a proxy cluster with 2 public IP addresses. If a destination is in your network, add inbound traffic from these IP addresses to your network allow list.

For more information, see Tanium Cloud Deployment Guide: Network egress. For assistance, contact Tanium Support.

Step 2: Create connections

Connections consist of a source and destination.

For more information, see Connection sources and Connection destinations.

Step 3: Manage connections

When you have multiple connections, you can view a list of all the connections and the connection schedule.

For more information, see Managing connections.
