ESET LiveGrid - firewall access

Recommended Posts


I got a message on ESET that says : "The ESET liveGrid servers could not be reached" with a hyperlinked called "Allow access to ESET LiveGrid servers on firewall"

I'm a bit confused.  The firewall is maintained by Eset itself.  So why does it not allow this action by default?  On the other hand I got new internet today, so perhaps it is an issue on my router, but how do I check which one it is?  I tried looking on eset, but I can't find where what ports it allows where.

When I click the link, it forwards me to this page: [KB332] Ports and addresses required to use your ESET product with a third-party firewall.

In the page it tells me

  • Ensure the following ports are open for all IP addresses listed below: TCP 80, TCP 53535, UDP 53535
  • The IP addresses below have to be enabled for HTTP port 80
  • Users on ESET Endpoint version 7.x and earlier, access to your local DNS server is required for DNS queries on UDP/TCP port 53 
  • Users on ESET Endpoint version 8.0 and later, access to your local DNS server is required for DNS queries and must be able to resolve hostnames

and then there is a list of ip addresses below.

So a couple of things. 

  • How do I check on ESET if these ports are allowed through the firewall since it manages the firewall? Because if everything checks out here, then the problem lies with the router.
  • on my skyhub(router) I can do firewall rules for outbound and inbound services, are these ports and ip addresses listed in article for inbound, outbound or both?
  • Is the ip addresses listed in the article ipv4 or ipv6, because i have options to allow both?

It would really help if I could add a screenshot to the post, but I cant.  It just gives a url.  Don't know how to work that too.

Any help would be appreciated. thanks!

If you don't use any proxy or hardware firewall (e.g. integrated in your router), it could be your ISP which is blocking the communication.

Please carry on as follows:

  1. Enable advanced logging under Help and support -> Technical support
  2. Reboot the machine
  3. Wait until the error occurs
  4. Stop logging
  5. Collect logs with ESET Log Collector and upload the generated archive here.
