It is essential that both ESET PROTECT Server and client computers managed by ESET PROTECT have a working internet connection so that they can reach the ESET repository and activation servers. If you prefer not to have clients connect directly to the internet, you can use a proxy server (ESET Bridge) to facilitate communication with your network and the internet.

The ESET PROTECT Server must be visible by client computers—client computers must be able to communicate with your ESET PROTECT Server to use remote deployment and the Wake-Up Call feature.

Ports used

If your network uses a firewall, see our list of possible network communication ports used when ESET PROTECT and its components are installed in your infrastructure.
