GLPI-Agent for WinCE 1.4

Open Source
Very light GLPI agent for Windows CE
You must be registered and logged into HPC:Factor in order to contribute to the SCL.


The agent will try to retreive the following informations and send them back to GLPI with FusionInventory plugin server:

device name
device hardware and model
device operating system version
device serial number
device MAC address
device IP

OCSInventory server should also be supported as far as UserAgent filtering on server side is updated to accept GLPI-Agent vX.Y.
Building the agent

To build the agent you will need a full cross-building toolchain for wince. We used cegcc/mingw32ce based on GCC v4.6.3 and published by Max Kerllermann for the XCSoar project needs.

The toolchain is available from: http://max.kellermann.name/projects/cegcc/

To build the agent, you need the following tool in your environment:


Building the cab installer

Before building the cab installer, you may want to update the src/Makefile.local with your GLPI server URL so it is defined during installation.

To build the installer, just start:

make cab

This will eventually download and install lcab and cabwiz tools from launchpad and github.

By the way, it also support to start cabwiz.exe using Wine. For this you need to copy cabwiz.exe, cabwiz.ddf and makecab.exe from a Visual Studio Legacy install to the tools folder. If such tools is found and Wine is installed on your system, lcab & cabwiz won't be downloaded.

Installation Instructions

GLPI-Agent for WinCE v1.4 CAB installer

This release has been tested on few ARM-based WinCE platforms.
You need at least WinCE 5.0, but it should work on earlier platform like Pocket PC 2003.
Default GLPI server URL is set to http://glpi/plugins/fusioninventory/
You can fix it after installation in the dedicated configuration file or starting the app.

Release notes:

GLPI Agent interface has been reworked and fixed.
Service DLL is now installed in the installation folder.

Notice: glpi-agent-test-v1.4.cab should only be tried in case of installation failure to look for error in the GLPI-Agent-installation.txt file created in the installation folder.
