Scheduling


NBT Agent must be run periodically to send and get info from NBT Server. To allow this, you should schedule NBT Agent using any comercial tool or any system tool (Unix Cron, Windows Schedule Task, etc). 

The recommended time interval between executions for NBT Agent is 15 minutes, but it can vary depending on your circumstances.
