BigFix Client Settings

Description

BES Clients listen for UDP commands that have been sent to them by their parent Relay or Server.  Sometimes UDP commands may not make it to a Client, as when UDP has been blocked by a firewall or there is a significant amount of network traffic.

This task configures Clients to poll their parent Relay or Server once an hour for UDP commands they may have missed (BigFix 6.0+).

Note: The minimum value for the polling interval is 1 minute and the maximum is 2 days.

Note:  Setting the polling interval to less than 20 minutes may cause performances issues and is not recommended.

I get a parsing error when trying to import.

I use this in lab.bigfix.me. This is to keep the non-windows systems very active and responding to newer content. I setup a constraint where [OS does not contain "Win"] to make this work.
