Contact Methods for Traditional Clients

Traditional clients can communicate with the Uyuni Server using a range of methods.

The Uyuni daemon (rhnsd) runs on traditional client systems and periodically connects with Uyuni to check for new updates and notifications.

Push via SSH is used in environments where clients cannot reach the Uyuni Server directly. In this environment, clients are located in a firewall-protected zone called a DMZ. No system within the DMZ is authorized to open a connection to the internal network, including the Uyuni Server.

OSAD is an alternative contact method between Uyuni and traditional clients. OSAD allows traditional clients to execute scheduled actions immediately.
