HTTP Server

Server port – By default, the Server port is set to 2221.

Authentication – Defines the method of authentication used for accessing update files. The following options are available: None, Basic and NTLM. Select Basic to use base64 encoding with basic username and password authentication. The NTLM option provides encoding using a safe encoding method. For authentication, the user created on the workstation sharing the update files is used. The default setting is None, which grants access to the update files with no need for authentication.

Append your Certificate chain file, or generate a self-signed certificate if you want to run HTTP server with HTTPS (SSL) support. The following certificate types are available: ASN, PEM and PFX. For additional security, you can use HTTPS protocol to download update files. It is almost impossible to track data transfers and login credentials using this protocol. The Private key type option is set to Integrated by default (and therefore the Private key file option is disabled by default). This means that the private key is a part of the selected certificate chain file.



Authentication data such as Username and Password is intended for accessing the proxy server. Complete these fields only if a username and password are required. Please note that these fields are not for your Username/Password for ESET Endpoint Security, and should only be completed if you know you need a password to access the internet via a proxy server.
