Messaging Gateway


You want to ensure that the Symantec Messaging Gateway (SMG) Control Center can communicate with a specific SMG scanner appliance.


You can confirm communication between the Control Center and Scanner via the Status->Hosts page:

  1. Log into the Control Center as an administrator
  2. Navigate to the Status->Hosts page
  3. Click the scanner host with which you want to test communication.

The Control Center will query the system and return information on the hardware status. A failure to communicate with the scanner will generate an error message indicating that the system status could not be retrieved.
