Connecting to the Default Agent

Typically, the default agent starts automatically when it is needed by Silk Test Classic. However, you can connect to the default agent manually if it does not start or to verify that it has started.

To connect to the default Agent, from the main menu, click Tools > Connect to Default Agent.

The command starts the Classic Agent or the Open Agent on the local machine, depending on which agent is specified as the default in the Runtime Options dialog box. If the Agent does not start within 30 seconds, a message is displayed. If the default Agent is configured to run on a remote machine, you must connect to it manually.
