Simple Linux Switch with Fedora

Recommended Posts


I set up a simple Linux Switch running Fedora and I installed UFW and Nod32. The Switch is supposed to take internet from the router, block certain ports using a UFW (Linux Uncomplicated Firewall) and create a NAT Network in which devices can or cannot access each others according to how the switch is configured. So far so good.

Then I just thought "hold on a second; considering that the majority of computers that are gonna be connected to the switch are running Windows, I could protect them from threats directly from the Switch", so I installed Nod32.

Question: is Nod32 for Linux able to protect computers running Windows from Windows-specific threats? Does it scan HTTPS traffic? Does it support TLS1.3 or is it gonna support it anytime soon?


Thank you in advance.

Hello @FranceBB,

ESET NOD32 for Linux is able to detect threats designed for Windows systems as well, but the ESET NOD32 for Linux does not scan http/https traffic.

So to secure your Windows environment you need to install ESET product on each of them,...
