Caching Proxy Settings Confusion


Go to solution Solved by Marcos,

I'm confused about different proxy settings in the security product proxy settings.

There are two different places where a proxy can be configured:

  • Update - HTTP Proxy
  • Tools -> Proxy Server

So which one does what and where do I have to configure a caching proxy to minimize internet traffic on client updates.

Hello,

if you connect to the Internet via a proxy server (ie. when browsing websites), you should configure it in Tools -> Proxy server so that all communication of the product (e.g. with update, activation, license, cloud servers, etc.) is carried out via the proxy server. If you want to take advantage of an http proxy server for updates only, configure it in the update setup.

Thanks for your answer.

 

BTW: Is there any place where I can see what the ESET apache HTTP proxy server is doing in order to check if my clients are correctly using the configured chaching proxy server?

Look in the config of ApacheHttpProxy httpd.conf for value of parameter CacheRoot. Value is path where files are cached.

This is default value when installed with All-in-one installer on Windows Vista and newer. So your cached files should be in "C:\ProgramData\Apache HTTP Proxy\cache".

Beware, ApachaHttpProxy uses its own proprietary format for cache, so it not very easy to tell what it is caching.
