Using a proxy server for updates

You may be required to specify proxy server settings to download database and application module updates from the update source. If there are multiple update sources, proxy server settings are applied for all sources. If a proxy server is not needed for some update sources, you can disable use of a proxy server in the policy properties. Kaspersky Endpoint Security will also use a proxy server to access Kaspersky Security Network and activation servers.

To configure a connection to update sources through a proxy server:

  1. In the main window of Web Console, click Settings_button.

    The Administration Server properties window opens.

  2. Go to the Internet access settings section.
  3. Select the Use proxy server check box.
  4. Configure the proxy server connection settings: proxy server address, port, and authentication settings (user name and password).
  5. Click the Save button.

To disable use of a proxy server for a specific administration group:

  1. In the main window of Web Console, select the DevicesPolicies and policy profiles tab.
  2. Click the name of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security policy for computers on which you want to disable use of a proxy server.

    The policy properties window opens.

  3. Select the Application settings tab.
  4. Go to the General settingsNetwork settings section.
  5. In the Proxy Server Settings section, select Do not use proxy server.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Confirm your changes by clicking Save.
