  1. It's Jan 22, 2021. Big Sur was released over two months ago. macOS 11.2 RC has been released to developers. Still, ESET hasn't released fully supported software. In fact, the promised deadline has already been delayed once. Why can't ESET developers create solutions using beta and RC OSs and be ready, on time, when new OS's are released?

  2. Super! Thanks for the input.

    For what it's worth, I have a MacBook Air with an M1 chip and it looks like it runs just fine on my machine. There is a weird close and reopen that happens when installing but that's been the case with any non-Universal app, so it looks like Rosetta 2 has done its job. I do hope a Universal Binary option is in the works (and with a Big Sur-compliant icon too!)


  3. I can confirm that the following are the only two methods that solve the issue-- OS 10.11.1, CSP

    "sudo killall -9 sets_proxy"

    uninstalling CSP


    Changing zone from public to home, disabling threatSense, disabling LiveGrid, disabling web access protection, or any of the OSX Yosemite 'connection reset' suggestions do NOT help.


    UPDATE #1: 

    ESET 2nd level support confirms that this is a known issue. We spent time yesterday collecting and sending logs. They will notify when an update to the issue is available. Until then, keep an eye out for any websites that have more of an issue than others: http or https. Is there any kind of trigger? Is there a particular duration between killing the proxy and next disconnect? Is there a certain number of internet connections (i.e. browser tabs, email client calls) that cause/overwhelm the proxy?


    FYI, repeated error messages in Console:

    15.11.28 06:50:38,000 kernel[0]: esets_pfw: ERROR[kernel_task]: Couldn't set proxy socket for relation
    15.11.28 06:50:38,059 esets[1336]: warning[16c00000]: Protoscan Proxy Agent: Cannot accept connection: Too many open files
    15.11.28 06:50:38,060 esets[1336]: warning[16c00000]: Protoscan Proxy Agent: Cannot accept connection: Read error
    UPDATE #2:
    ESET has a new proxy module that appears to solve this issue. Not sure why they haven't yet pushed out a new CSP version that contains the module.
  4. CSP v6.1.12.0 and OS 10.11.1

    Brand new MBA. Same issues as expressed herein.

    Erased HD. Fresh install. Same issues as expressed herein.



    Uninstall ESET. Immediately surfing works--no connection lost (safari), no ERR_SOCKET_NOT_CONNECTED (chrome), no web page not available (opera)


    On old computer, currently testing disabled LiveGrid, disabled TSE for web access protection.
