In order to setup ESET Remote Administrator, you will need to complete four core steps:
- Download and install ESET Remote Administrator and ESET NOD32 Antivirus
- Set up a Mirror server
- Create an installation package
- Push installation package out to client workstations
Download the appropriate files below. You will be prompted for your ESET-issued username and password. You will also be prompted to upload your nod32.lic license file when installing ESET Remote Administrator Server. You can recover a misplaced username/password or license file using the Lost License form.
You may deploy as many Mirror servers as necessary for the most efficient distribution of virus signature and program component updates within your environment. A Mirror server can be set up in two ways:
Distribution of updates via HTTP can be easier to configure and is not limited by the file server license limit, which is a potential limitation of the shared network folder method. Click your preferred method (above) to jump to step-by-step instructions.
Regardless of which method you choose, there are several places within the software that allow you to configure a Mirror server:
- ESET Remote Administrator Console (ERAC)
- ESET NOD32 Antivirus 3.x/4.x or ESET Smart Security 3.x/4.x client
- ESET NOD32 Antivirus 2.7 client
- Open ERAC by clicking Start All Programs ESET ESET Remote Administrator Console ESET Remote Administrator Console.
- Verify that you are connected to the ESET Remote Administrator Server (File Connect).
- Click Tools Server Options.
- Click the Updates tab and enter the appropriate ESET-supplied values in the Update username and Update password fields (Click Set Password... to enter your password).
- Select the check box next to Create update mirror in the middle of the window.
- Select the Provide update files via internal HTTP server check box.
- If you wish to use a port other than the default port (2221), enter the value in the HTTP server port check box (the default value is recommended unless you have other applications communicating on this port).
- Click Update now to display a confirmation dialog box ('This will first apply server options and then fire the event. Continue?') Click Yes.
- A dialog box will be displayed ('Event fired on the server') Click OK.
- Create a shared folder on a local or network device. This folder must be readable by all users running ESET software, and writeable by the local SYSTEM account. (If the shared folder is located on another computer in the network, it is necessary to specify authentication for accessing that computer).
