Tentacle pulling from server
We have environments that are isolated environments consisting of VM's sitting in their own networks. The only way in/out the isolated environment is via a management server (or jumpbox) Having the Server calling Tentacles forces us to set up port forwarding on servers.
It would be great if a Tentacle could query the server instead of server calling it. All communication would be going out of the isolated environment.
Polling tentacles is now supported in Octopus Deploy https://octopus.com/docs/infrastructure/windows-targets/polling-tentacles
I agree we have this same need in our production environments. I would like to see a 3rd tentacle mode that is just an router mode. Where the tentacle can query from a octopus server and deliver content and instructions for other tentacles that are listening to it versus the server. This would allow the jump box machine to have a tentacle that could be the server target for the machine tentacles in production. We would also not have to open up outbound firewall ports or have more than one octopus server involved.
