ESET Inspect Connector Installation

ESET Inspect Connector is installed on endpoint devices that are monitored by ESET Inspect / ESET Inspect Cloud and collect the data for the ESET Inspect, removes malicious components, and blocks execution of these components.

ESET Inspect Connector can be installed/deployed on Windows, macOS or Linux systems using their GUI if available, from the command line or by deploying through ESET PROTECT.

For the uninstallation process of ESET Inspect Connector follow.


Before installing the ESET Inspect Connector, make sure you are using the latest ESET Endpoint Product update.


Remember that if the ESET Inspect Connector lost the connection with the ESET Inspect Server, it caches the data locally, and the limit is 1GB. You can change this in the ESET Inspect Connector.ini file located on target machines by adding the parameter the MaxOfflineStorageSize, which controls the limit. The value is in Bytes, so the actual set value is 1073741824.


After installing or upgrading ESET Inspect Connector, there is approximately a 7-minute delay until the connector starts to communicate with ESET Inspect Server. Because of that, you see the warning message in ESET PROTECT that the computer cannot connect to ESET Inspect Server. The ESET Inspect Connector will be immediately visible as active at ESET Inspect Web Console if connected correctly.
