Enable data communication without TLS 1.2

Is there a work-around for enabling client-server data communication, if TLS 1.2 version is not available?

Yes, in case you have older versions of TLS installed, please follow the steps below to ensure uninterrupted data collection.

This is applicable only for Windows server 2003 and 2008.
  1. Download the given files, based on your OS architecture:
    32-bit: http://staticdownloads.site24x7.com/server/WinCommunicationExt32.zip 
    64-bit: http://staticdownloads.site24x7.com/server/WinCommunicationExt64.zip 
  2. Rename the zip file to WinCommunicationExt.zip

  3. Copy-paste the above file inside the Site24x7 Windows agent installation directory - C:\Program Files\Site24x7\WinAgent

  4. Navigate to regedit and set  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ManageEngine\Site24x7WindowsAgent\Monitoring\UseCommunicationExt to true 

  5. Restart the Site24x7 Windows Agent service from services.msc 

This will ensure the Windows server monitoring agent continues to perform data collection, even if TLS 1.2 is not installed in your servers.
