Configure ESET Bridge

You can configure ESET Bridge remotely from ESET PROTECT:

1.Configure ESET Bridge settings using ESET Bridge Policy.

2.Configure ESET Management Agent Policy settings to define how client computers use the ESET Bridge proxy function (caching of updates, traffic forwarding).

3.Configure ESET security product Policy settings for client computers.


ESET PROTECT All-in-one installer and Virtual Appliance (when ESET Bridge is enabled during the Virtual Appliance deployment) create default HTTP Proxy Usage policies for ESET Management Agent and ESET security products applied to the All Static Group. The policies automatically configure ESET Management Agents and ESET security products on managed computers to use ESET Bridge as a Proxy for caching update packages. The HTTPS traffic caching is enabled by default:

The ESET Bridge policy contains the HTTPS certificate, and the Cache HTTPS Traffic toggle is enabled.

The ESET Endpoint for Windows HTTP Proxy Usage policy contains the Certificate Authority for the HTTPS traffic caching.

If you have existing policies that apply to all Agents and computers, edit your existing policies rather than create new ones. In Policies, click the policy > select icon_edit Edit > edit policy Settings.
