ERA 6.x Proxy policy settings



ESET Management Agents (since the version 7) are not able to connect the ERA due to new replication protocol. Agents of version 6.x can connect to the version 7 or 8 Server via ERA Proxy. For migration follow the proxy migration guidelines.

It is possible to change the behavior of machines with ERA Proxy component via policy. This is mostly used to change settings like connection interval or the server to which the proxy is connected. Click Policies and expand Custom Policies to edit an existing policy or create a new one.

icon_section Connection

Server port - This is the port for the connection between the ESET PROTECT Server and Proxy. Changing this option requires that you restart the ERA Server service for the change to take effect.

Servers to connect to - To add ERA Server connection details (hostname/IP and a port number), click Edit server list. Multiple ERA Servers can be specified. This can be useful if, for example, you've changed the IP address of your ERA/ESET PROTECT Server or are performing a migration.

Data limit - Specify the maximum number of bytes for sending data.

Connection interval - Select Regular interval and specify a time value for the connection interval (or you can use a CRON expression).

Certificate - You can manage peer certificates for ERA Proxy. Click Change certificate and select which ERA Proxy certificate should be used by ERA Proxy. For more information, see Peer Certificates.

icon_section Advanced Settings

Diagnostics - Enable or disable the submission of anonymous crash report statistics to ESET for the improvement of customer experience.

Logging > Trace log verbosity - Set the log verbosity to determine the level of information that will be collected and logged, from Trace (informational) to Fatal (most important critical information).
