Looking for a "Check-In Agent"
I'm setting up some Debian laptops that will be used outside the office and I will need to remote to them from time to time.
They have inbuilt mobile WAN NICs and connect to the internet via these.
I'm looking for a way to have these laptops check in to a server and publish their public IP automatically, this way I can look them up in a table and remote to their Public IP...
I've used Kaseya previously (I'd recommend it to anyone...but be very careful with their updates!)...I got the idea for this from that, however I don't need the extra functionality, only to know their IP.
I'm interested in all ideas you may have about this, I imagine I will need to setup a server for these devices to report to. Possibly a script to send the report with a notification it is online (at regular intervals...using cron)
Kind of like a dynamic DNS type application but to check in every couple of minutes and report each time of the IP address...
Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, it kind of belongs in a few different threads.
