Configuring and running the MobiLink Agent on the client device

The Agent can be run in two modes: configuration mode and normal mode. In configuration mode, options specified on the command line are stored in the agent database for use during the next run in normal mode. Once the specified options are stored, the Agent terminates.

When run in normal mode, the Agent reads the configuration options stored in the agent database and remains running. While running it executes remote tasks it has received when appropriate and synchronizes the agent database at various times to receive new remote tasks and to upload results of remote tasks that it has run.

When run in normal mode, the Agent always attempts to do a synchronization at startup. This can be useful when you want to force the Agent to get up to date information from MobiLink.
