NetPath system requirements

When using NetPath with SolarWinds N-central, ensure there is access to the following URLs and ports:

  • https://keybox.solarwindsmsp.com:443/
  • https://ui.netpath.solarwindsmsp.com:443/

For NetPath, one of the following:

  • https://us-west-2-svc.netpath.solarwindsmsp.com:443/
  • https://eu-central-1-svc.netpath.solarwindsmsp.com:443/
  • https://ap-southeast-2-svc.netpath.solarwindsmsp.com:443/

NetPath also requires .Net 4.5 or higher. If not installed on the device, the NetPath agent will deploy it.

NetPath uses distributed monitoring and path analysis using WinPcap, a Windows packet capture library, to discover how applications are delivered through the network to your users. Netpath installs into the following locations on a device:

  • C:\Program Files\NetPath
  • C:\ProgramData\AdvancedMonitoringNetpathAgent
  • C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\
  • C:\Program Files\WinPcap

See the SolarWinds N-central system requirements for more information.
