HTTP Agent testing with the Mozilla Firefox

To test ESETS HTTP Agent on your local machine, you need to set the local proxy server to ‘localhost:8080’. See the figure below for an example of such configuration in the Mozilla Firefox brower:

Note: You do not need to configure the local machines connected to the ESETS server in the same manner. However, you will still need to set a transparent http proxy via netfilter (see section A.1 for details).

If attempting to open an infected file, a warning message similar to the one on the figure below will display in your browser window:
