Recommended Posts

  • ESET Moderators

We are delighted to announce the launch of the ESET Bridge BETA program.

 

ESET Bridge is a new solution for caching and forwarding traffic of ESET products heading to ESET's online services.

ESET Bridge, built on NGINX, is a successor of the HTTP Proxy.

To name some of the new features and improvements:

  • Integration with ESET PROTECT which will allow users to manage ESET Bridge
  • HTTPS traffic caching
  • Certificates deployment via ESET PROTECT
  • Watchdog functionality
  • Crash dump functionality

To test the mentioned features, it is required to deploy:

  • ESET PROTECT BETA build 
  • ESET Bridge BETA build
  • Endpoint 10 BETA build

These installation binaries are available at https://forum.eset.com/files/category/9-eset-bridge-beta/

 

Supported OSes for ESET Bridge are Windows Server 2016/2019/2022 and Linux - Linux systems compatible with ESET PROTECT 9.1 Server component

 

Detailed ESET Bridge help is available at https://help.eset.com/ebe/1/en-US/

 

As usually, by downloading and using the builds, you agree with our BETA program agreement, which is available at https://forum.eset.com/files/file/58-eset-beta-program-agreement/

To ask a question or report any issues, you encounter during the BETA just post a reply here.

 

We are looking forward to your participation and feedback,
Peter on behalf of the teams involved

Hello Peter,

So this is for on prem only correct?  I would not mind beta testing the ESET Endpoint Security v 10 if it is compatible with ESET Protect Cloud.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Jim

Hello Jim / @Trooper,

as of now it is compatible with the on-prem deployment only 😞 (the ESET Bridge management, cert distribution for https caching)

It can be deployed as a stand-alone, not managed proxy for the current endpoints as well.

Hi

1. I have installed eset-bridge on linux (ubuntu20.04) after rebooting there is an error. Problem: ESET Bridge Proxy is non-functional, Problem Detail:  The proxy could not be started, and the functionality is missing. (screenshot attached)

log Sep 07 03:11:39 eset-bridge Bridge[1391]: nginx: [warn] the "user" directive makes sense only if the master process runs with super-user privileges, ignored in /var/opt/eset/bridge/nginx/conf/nginx.conf:1
Sep 07 03:11:39 eset-bridge Bridge[1391]: nginx: [emerg] cannot load certificate "/var/opt/eset/bridge/nginx/conf/nginx.crt": BIO_new_file() failed (SSL: error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory:fopen('/var/opt/eset>

reboot and restart EsetBridge service doesn't fix the problem, any suggestions?

2. how to ensure that eset-bridge has cached downloads and updates?
is it true that default cache path linux /var/opt/eset/bridge/nginx/data/eset_cache ?

Thanks,

Hello @obee,

In an unmanaged environment, when the ESET Bridge is installed as a standalone application, not with the EP All-in-one installer, certificates will need to be deployed manually from ESET Protect via policies to have the HTTPS caching working. More information can be found here: https://help.eset.com/ebe/1/en-US/installation.html?caching_https.html

The behavior described above can be reproduced if the HTTPS caching option is enabled in Bridge policy but there was no certificate provided in the policy screen.

Regarding the second question, the cache path provided is correct.
Also the cache.log file from the nginx/logs folder can be inspected for MISS or HIT tags to check whether the data was fetched from the cache or from the upstream servers.

Hope it helps!

Ingemar

Thanks Peter.  Looking forward to when I can beta test the EES for use with Protect Cloud.

Cheers!
