Windows Proxy configuration


This configuration is for Apache HTTP Proxy only. If you use ESET Bridge, configure it through ESET PROTECT Web Console.

If you use your own Apache HTTP Proxy for caching ESET LiveGuard Advanced files, you need to modify your httpd.conf file. It is usually located in the Apache in the conf folder.

Add the segments of configuration in the order as they are listed below.


4.ESET LiveGuard Advanced requires SSL, headers, alias modules available and enabled in your proxy. Verify whether modules are present and add the following lines to the proxy configuration file to load required modules:

LoadModule alias_module ..\modules\mod_alias.dll

LoadModule ssl_module ..\modules\mod_ssl.dll

LoadModule headers_module ..\modules\mod_headers.dll


<IfModule ssl_module>

SSLRandomSeed startup builtin

SSLRandomSeed connect builtin



LoadModule proxy_module ..\modules\mod_proxy.dll

LoadModule proxy_http_module  ..\modules\mod_proxy_http.dll

LoadModule proxy_connect_module ..\modules\mod_proxy_connect.dll

LoadModule cache_module ..\modules\mod_cache.dll

LoadModule cache_disk_module ..\modules\mod_cache_disk.dll


5.Enable caching, Agent connection and HTTPS connection, set the log file.

CacheEnable disk http://

CacheDirLevels 4

CacheDirLength 2

CacheDefaultExpire 3600

CacheMaxFileSize 200000000
