Update mirror

ESET Mail Security allows you to create copies of update files that can be used to update other workstations on the network. The use of a "mirror" - a copy of the update files in the LAN environment is convenient because the update files do not need to be downloaded from the vendor update server repeatedly by each workstation. Updates are downloaded to the local mirror server and then distributed to all workstations to avoid the risk of network traffic overload.

Updating client workstations from a Mirror optimizes network load balance and saves internet connection bandwidth.


To minimize internet traffic on networks where ESET PROTECT is used to manage many clients, we recommend using ESET Bridge rather than configuring a client as a mirror. ESET Bridge can be installed with ESET PROTECT using the All-in-one installer or as a standalone component. For more information and differences between ESET Bridge, Apache HTTP Proxy, Mirror Tool, and direct connectivity, see ESET PROTECT Online Help page.
