server to agent communication

Hi,

I understand that agent to server communication happens using http(s).

This query is about server to agent communication. What mechanism / protocol is used for this. Is there anything needed apart from jdk/jre on agent for this.

HTTP protocol is used in both cases, no additional software is required.

Thanks for prompt response.

So do agents listen onto socket/ports, waiting for server requests. And server opens HTTP client socket connection on to the agent port for raising requests/sending commands to agents.

Yes. Agents are waiting for commands from the server.
