Distributed computing in wide area networks requires special approach to solve the problem of communication between secure areas. Since there is no possibility to establish connection from the outside to secure region and no possibility to discover hidden resources (i.e. grids), special mechanisms are required to do this job. Article presents a new approach to solve these two problems by introduction of agent oriented design for establishing connections and resources discovery. Moreover, presented architecture stands for resources access transparency and is suitable for resources management in grids, especially using JMX (Java Management Extension) technology.
