-Older agents from Zabbix 1.x and previous versions of Zabbix 2.x can still be used with Zabbix ​2.4. It does not require any configuration ​changes on agent side.+Zabbix ​agents starting with version ​1.4 are compatible ​with Zabbix 4.0. However, you may need to review the configuration ​of older agents as some parameters have changed, for example, parameters related to [[https://​www.zabbix.com/​documentation/​3.0/​manual/​installation/​upgrade_notes_300#​changes_in_configuration_parameters_related_to_logging|logging]] for versions before 3.0.

 === Supported Zabbix proxies === === Supported Zabbix proxies ===
  
-Only Zabbix ​2.proxies may be used with Zabbix ​server. Zabbix ​1.6, 1.8, 2.0 and 2.proxies ​are not supported ​with Zabbix ​2.4 server.+Zabbix 4.0.x server can only work with Zabbix ​4.0.x proxies. Zabbix ​4.0.x proxies can only work with Zabbix 4.0.x server. 
 + 
 +<note important>​It is known to be possible to start an upgraded server and have older, yet unupgraded ​proxies ​report data to a newer server (the proxies can't refresh their configuration though). This approach, however, is not recommended and not supported ​by Zabbix ​and choosing it is entirely at your own riskFor more information,​ see the [[:​manual/​installation/​upgrade|upgrade procedure]].</​note>​ 
 + 
 +Warnings about using incompatible Zabbix daemon versions are logged since Zabbix ​4.0.8. 
  
-Zabbix 2.4 proxies may only be used with Zabbix 2.4 server. They will not work with 2.2 or older Zabbix server.

 <note important>​In Zabbix 1.8 XML export format, trigger dependencies are stored by name only. If there are several triggers with the same name (for example, having different severities and expressions) that have a dependency defined between them, it is not possible to import them. Such dependencies must be manually removed from the XML file and re-added after import.</​note>​ <note important>​In Zabbix 1.8 XML export format, trigger dependencies are stored by name only.
