Typical reasons for this are 

- Port 54663 is blocked between bamboo and remote agent .   port 54663  is used by remote agent to communicate to bamboo - ensure that the remote agent host  can access bamboo agent on that port 

- As foon already mentioned the broker client URL is incorrect

"could not find system variable. If you wish to use perforce please set the location as a capability."

This is not an error. It can be ignored.

If your Bamboo agent stuck at "Registering agent on the server" with error later on, check the Broker Client URL at Administration > System > General configuration > Broker configuration to make sure that the hostname or IP address can be accessed from the machine hosting remote agent.

Make sure that Broker URL is using for hostname.

You can try testing the connection with the following command in the machine hosting remote agent:

telnet <hostname> 54663

If it return a message, it means the network connection is fine.
