Server-assisted Agent installation

To continue server-assisted Agent installation follow these steps:

1.Type the hostname or IP address of your ESET PROTECT Web Console (same as ESET PROTECT Server) in the Server host field. Leave Web Console port set to the default port 2223 if you are not using custom port. Also, type your Web Console account credentials in the Username and Password fields. To log in as a domain user, select the check box next to Log into domain.


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 if there is a wildcard (*) in Server certificate Host field, which means it will work with any Server host.

You cannot use a user with two-factor authentication for server-assisted installations.

2.Click Yes when asked if you want to accept the certificate.

3.Select Do not create computer (computer will be created automatically during the first connection) or Choose custom static group. If you click Choose custom static group you will be able to select from a list of existing Static groups in ESET PROTECT. The computer will be added to the group you have selected.

4.Specify a destination folder for the ESET Management Agent (we recommend that you use the default location), click Next and then click Install.
