It is not possible to update Endpoint 6.6 using Mirror tool from ESET Remote Administrator 6.5 and earlier or create an update mirror for Endpoint 6.6 using any product earlier than 6.6 (6.5 and older)  

Does ESET will update new Mirror Tool version to support 6.6 in the future?

Hello Sdnian,

as far as I know the mirror tool does not have any special application logic to support the Endpoint 6.6

It just copies the files required from the update servers.

Regards, P.R.

Yes, we plan to have a new version of the mirror tool but it will take some time. Isn't an http proxy an option for you? With http proxy much less data should be downloaded with each update compared to using a mirror.

I've try to use http proxy since 6.2/6.3.. I am familiar the http proxy advantages. But in my experience, It is relatively slow, and more unstable. Some of my clients always complain it. So I prefer to use mirror tool.

When you release new version of mirror tool, please support Windows Server 2003. Several months ago, I've ask this issue, but still no fix until now. 

 

By the way, could you ask your engineer to check why the 6.6 update files can't be cached in local disk by apache http proxy? Every time it download from ESET server, apache http proxy just forward the requests. I tried to analyze the problem, It should be missing 'Cache-Control' in the header of HTTP response.

For example, this file hxxp://update.eset.com/era6-sta/mod_000_loader_1112/em000_64_l0.nup, it have 'Cache-Control' and could be saved the cache file in "C:\ProgramData\Apache Http Proxy\Cache"

But this file hxxp://update.eset.com/ep6.6-rel-sta/mod_041_w10upgrade_1000/em041_32_l0.nup, it can't be saved by Apache HTTP Proxy. No matter how many times I download, it is always downloaded directly from the ESET server.

We are currently in the process of checking nginx configuration which is most likely causing EPv6.6 update files not to be cached. We'll keep you posted.
