validation-status-icon-infoNOTE: See the Administration guide or our Knowledgebase article for additional methods to install the ERA Agent on clients.

To install the ERA Agent component locally on Windows, follow these steps:

1.Visit the ESET Remote Administrator 6 download section to download a standalone installer for ERA components.

2.Run the ERA Agent installer and accept the EULA if you agree with it.

3.Enter the Server host (hostname or IP address of your ERA Server or ERA Proxy) and Server port (the default port is 2222, if you are using a different port, replace the default port with your custom port number).

validation-status-icon-warning IMPORTANT: Make sure the Server host matches at least one the values (ideally be FQDN) defined in Host field of the Server certificate. Otherwise you will get an error saying "Received server certificate is not valid". The only exception is in case there is a wild card (*) in Server certificate Host field, which means it will work with any Server host.

4.Select one of the following installation options and follow the steps from the appropriate section below:

Server-assisted installation - You will need to provide ERA Web Console administrator credentials (installer will download the required certificates automatically).

Offline installation - You will need to provide an Agent certificate, which can be exported from ESET Remote Administrator. Alternatively, you can use your custom certificate.
