Proxy server

Select Do not use proxy server to specify that no proxy server will be used to update ESET Virtualization Security.

The Connection through a proxy server option should be selected if:

A proxy server different from the proxy server specified in the global settings (Tools > Proxy server) should be used to update ESET Virtualization Security. In such a configuration, settings should be specified here: Proxy server address, communication Port (3128 by default), plus Username and Password for the proxy server if required.

Proxy server settings are not set globally, but ESET Virtualization Security will connect to a proxy server for updates.

Your computer is connected to the Internet via a proxy server. Settings are taken from Internet Explorer during program installation, but if they are subsequently changed (for example, if you change your ISP), please check that the HTTP proxy settings listed in this window are correct. Otherwise the program will not be able to connect to update servers.


Authentication data such as Username and Password is intended for accessing the proxy server. Complete these fields only if a username and password are required. Note that these fields should only be completed if you know you need a password to access the internet via a proxy server.
