In your cloud instance, go to Admin > Downloads. There, you will see links to download the Agent appropriate for your OS:
Windows Agent Deployments
windows64.exe (All modern 64-bit versions of Windows)
windows32.exe (All modern 32-bit versions of Windows)
Note: below XP/2003 agents are listed. Support is limited to "temporary" mode, i.e. you can execute it via Agentless/Controller deployment or in Offline "survey" mode. To do so, use the --no-install switch.
xp64.exe (Windows XP and Server 2003 64-bit)
xp32.exe (Windows XP and Server 2003 32-bit)
Run this executable as administrator and follow the prompts in a command line interface.
You will see these prompts:
URL The URL of the Infocyte instance (e.g. https://mycompanyname.infocyte.com). The URL will be supplied to you via email and/or by your Infocyte representative.
Agent Registration Keys [Optional]: The registration key used for automatically registering new agents and optionally adding them to a Target Group. This streamlines the process when you have hundreds or thousands of Agents to add at once. These agent registration keys can be generated in the instance under the profile icon, Admin > Agent > Registration Keys.

Linux Agent Deployments
linux32.exe is for 32-bit Linux operating systems.
linux64.exe is for 64-bit Linux operating systems.
Linux Support for Agent Installation: To install the Linux Agent, systemd is required as the default init for the system. This is the default with most modern Linux OSes.
The check if you are using systemd type this command:
The output should be something similar to:
/sbin/init: symbolic link to /lib/systemd/systemd
For older Linux endpoints support is limited to "temporary" mode, i.e. execute it via Agentless/Controller deployment or in Offline "survey" mode.
After downloading the agent, run this command in order to execute it:
chmod +x linux64.exe
This will allow the command to be executable. You must then run the command as a super user (sudo the command).
sudo ./linux64.exe --key <Registration Key> --url https://mycompany.infocyte.com
MAC OS Agents
Downloads for the MAC agent is not on by default in the solution at this time. If you need to download and install the agent for MAC OS's please contact Support@Infocyte.Com to have it enabled. Support will provide further instructions at that time for installation.
