Hi all, I´m trying to setup Apache HTTP Proxy in a company where ERA Server needs to connect through firewall with proxy server, how to configure Apache HTTP Proxy to connect to authenticated (user/password) proxy server?

Doesn't the company's proxy server cache files? In such case, clients could simply use the existing proxy, just configure it in the policy that is applied on clients and agents.

Company have proxy for all network but I don´t know if that proxy can cache large files like Endpoint Agent and Clients, it will be more easy make Apache HTTP Proxy access forward proxy and configure ERA, Clients and Agent with the same proxy configuration, besides, I can´t deploy Agent,  Live Installer or Remote Installation doesn´t work only Local method and I need to demonstrate to my client with 1500 nodes that ESET Endpoint V6 will replace Symantec Endpoint without headaches.

Hello,

 

I would suggest to check the settings of the main proxy and utilize it or you can simply try if the caching works.

 

To set up a proxy behind a proxy you have to configure proxy_remote.

The easiest way to troubleshoot it is to try it via browser on the same machive.

Caching works. It works for small files (such as virus definition update). But when i need to download bigger files - era agent or antivirus install file, corporate proxy need authentication. How to set it?

Thanks

Hello,

 

the easiest way would be to use the proxy not directly so not to chain it.

If you need to have one proxy behind another you can configure it not to request authentication from the other one.

I am in process of replacing ESET with some other antivirus solution, because of problems you have and much more and I have only 100 clients. I am waiting every day for some good news, but it seems that won't happen. Still have less than year until it expires. Good luck with v6.
