Install ESET Bridge

You can deploy ESET Bridge in several ways.

Local deployment:

Windows installation (ESET PROTECT All-in-one installer 10.0 and later)—Recommended



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.


Windows installation (standalone installer)

Linux installation—For advanced users only


ESET PROTECT Virtual Appliance users

We recommend that you install ESET Bridge during the initial ESET PROTECT Virtual Appliance (version 10.1 and later) configuration by selecting the Enable ESET Bridge Proxy check box.
