Server Settings

In this section, configure specific settings for the ESET Remote Administrator Server itself.

icon_section Connection

Remote Administrator port (requires restart!) - This is the port for the connection between the ESET Remote Administrator Server and Agent(s). Changing this option requires restarting the ERA Server Service for the change to take effect.

Web Console port (requires restart!) - Port for the connection between the ERA Web Console and the ERA Server.

Advanced security - You can enforce ERA Server to use newest TLS and newly created certification authorities and certificates will use SHA-2. Enabling Advanced security may break compatibility with older systems.

Certificate (requires restart!) - Here you can manage ERA Server certificates, click Change certificate and select which ERA Server certificate should be used by your ERA Server. For more information, see Peer Certificates.

These changes require restart of the ESET Remote Administrator Server service, see our Knowledgebase article for instructions.

icon_section Updates

Update interval - Interval on which updates will be received. You can select a Regular interval and configure the settings or you can use a CRON expression.

Update server - Update server from which the ERA Server receives updates for security products and ERA components.

Update type - Select the type of updates you want to receive. You can choose either Regular, Pre-release or Delayed update. We do not recommend that you select Pre-release updates for production systems as this is a risk.

icon_section Advanced Settings

HTTP Proxy - Use a proxy server to facilitate internet traffic to clients on your network.

WakeUp - Allows your server to trigger an instant replication of the selected agent. UDPv4 and UDPv6 ports are used with default port numbers 1237 and 1238.

SMTP server - Use an SMTP Server to let ERA Server send email messages (for example email notifications or reports). Specify details of your SMTP server.

Syslog server - You can have ERA sending notifications and event messages to your Syslog server. Also, it is possible to export logs from a client computer's ESET security product and send them to the Syslog server.

Static Groups - Enables automatic pairing of found computers to computers already present in Static Groups. Pairing works on reported hostname by ERA Agent and if it can not be trusted then it should be disabled. If pairing fails computer will be placed into Lost and Found group.

Repository - Location of the repository where all installation files are stored.
