"network security" ESET File Security 8 on Windows Server 2008 R2


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

why is "network security" disabled when installing "default" ESET File Security 8 on Windows Server 2008 R2?

Is there anything against enableing it?

That's because without KB2664888 the server could stop responding:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/computer-stops-responding-when-you-run-an-application-that-uses-the-windows-filtering-platform-api-in-windows-7-windows-server-2008-r2-windows-server-2008-or-windows-vista-7e37fbbb-7fc8-a41e-6fd1-75f554501992

You can install EFSW in custom mode and select Web and network protection to install.

Also please bear in mind that the OS reached EOL in 2020 and no security updates are issued any more (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/windows-server-eos-faq/end-of-support-windows-server-2008-2008r2). We strongly recommend upgrading to a fully supported OS.
