Managed Nebula Client

In order for hosts to join a Managed Nebula network and be managed through the admin panel, they must run client software, called dnclient. Download and installation instructions are shown in the admin panel after creating a new host.

dnclient polls the Defined Networking service once per minute to check for updates to the host's configuration, and will apply changes as needed. For example, when a host is blocked, all other hosts on the network which are connected to the internet and able to poll the Defined Networking service will stop trusting the certificate of the blocked host within 60 seconds of the host being blocked.
