Here my issue...
I purchased a monitoring software installed the agent on the target PC and the viewer on my PC.
I'm going to attempt to explain the way (I think) it works:
I install the viewer on my PC and activate it with a purchased (obtained) serial
I then generate an "agent installation" file and install it on the target PC
Once you install the agent on the target remote or LAN PC
You query your viewer (on my PC) for any PCs on LAN or WAN
It finds the target PC, click on it, and you're prompted for a password & port # to connect for that remote PC
You then have to go to the vendor's "password page" to retrieve the password and port #, which is needed to cnct to the target PC
You enter that info & Voila!
Everything worked fine until a few weeks a go when I realized that the vendors website is gone! they're out of biz...(I guess)
Luckily target PCs on which the agent is already installed still work fine, but I can no longer add new target PCs...Ok I stand corrected, "I CAN" but I cannot retrieve that specific agent password and port # from the vendor's "password page". Also if any of the already monitored PCs crash, I can re-install an new agent, but I would run to the same password and port retrieving problem!!!
I think the specific agent password is somewhere (installed & hidden) on target PC's hard drive. So I'm thinking of a two-prong strategy: short term & long term..
I'd like to be able to retrieve the pass and port #, since I have access to target PCs, as well as the actual agent installation file, since I generate it using the viewer, then install it on the target PC.
Ideally, it would be nice if we can change the actual code on the agent installation file so that it passes a fix password and port number to the PC it is installed on.
I've done some reading and I've downloaded ollydbg and tutorials, but I have no idea where to start?, what to look? for and how?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
