definition file (patrol_v9.def) that you can
modify for your system.

hostname username password port
- hostname is the name of the host on which the agent runs
- username is a username to log in to the host
- password is the encrypted password for the username
- port is the port to which you are connecting

the agent details. See Utilities supplied with the Probe for BMC Patrol V9.
