Conducting Test using Remote Agent.

SP Agent is the machine which is used to generate virtual user load. We have
load test being carried in our project which is to be simulated from client
environment This is to avoid the network delays as users of this app would be
in client environment load should be simulated form client environment. (In fact
we observed difference in response time as high as 10 sec when we compared
two test run. One using offshore Agent and other using onsite Agent.)

For this we got a machine in Client and we would connect to this machine
through vpn. Hence this would be used as Agent while we would control
execution of test from offshore. To be able to do this we got two ports 19200
and 19202 opened on this machine from client environment . Opening of these
two ports got us going with performance test.
