Installing Network Sensor¶
The network sensor is installed in the user's network and collects the information and transmits it to the policy server. Depending on your network configuration, you may need to install one or more network sensors on your network.
You can install Network Sensor on a physical machine or virtual machine.
- Physical Machine
- You can use generic intel server like HP, Dell or Mini PC for testing and small deployment. If you have any hardware comparability issue, please contact us

For more information about sizing, See Sizing Software and Hardware.
Prepare Network Connection¶
Genian NAC requires a network connection with at least one static IP address. You can use an 802.1Q trunk port to manage multiple VLANs on a single network connection. If you are using a virtual machine, be sure to select the network interface type in Bridge mode. It is recommended that the Wireless Network Adapter be installed in order for the network sensor to collect Wireless LAN information. See Wireless Adapter Compatibility
