Testing direct endpoint connections

Use Direct Connect to test connections to endpoints without formally creating a connection. Test connections are a helpful tool to ensure that users of Tanium modules can make connections to endpoints and to troubleshoot connection issues if they occur.

Test a direct endpoint connection

  1. From the Direct Connect Main menu, click Test Connection.
  2. Enter the IP address or Computer Name (exactly as it appear in the Computer Name sensor) for the endpoint to which you want to test a connection. Click Search.

If the test connection was unsuccessful, see Troubleshooting Direct Connect.
