Setting up the access to KSN

To set up Administration Server's access to KSN:

  1. In the console tree, select the Administration Server for which you need to configure the access to KSN.
  2. In the context menu of the Administration Server, select Properties.
  3. In the Administration Server properties window, in the KSN proxy server section, select the KSN proxy server settings section.
  4. Select the Use Administration Server as proxy server check box to enable the KSN Proxy service.

    Data is sent from client devices to KSN in accordance with the Kaspersky Endpoint Security policy, which is active on those client devices. If this check box is cleared, no data will be sent to KSN from the Administration Server and client devices through Kaspersky Security Center. However, client devices can send data to KSN directly (bypassing Kaspersky Security Center), in accordance with their respective settings. The Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows policy, which is active on client devices, determines which data will be directly (bypassing Kaspersky Security Center) sent by those devices to KSN.

  5. Select the I agree to use Kaspersky Security Network check box.

    If this check box is selected, client devices send patch installation results to Kaspersky Lab. When selecting this check box, you should read and accept the terms of the KSN Statement.

    If you are using Private KSN (the infrastructure of KSN is located not on Kaspersky Lab servers but, for instance, within the Internet provider's network), select the Configure Private KSN check box and click the Select file with KSN settings button to download the settings of Private KSN (files with the extensions pkcs7, pem). After the settings are downloaded, the interface displays the provider's name and contacts, as well as the creation date of the file with the settings of Private KSN.

    The following Kaspersky Lab applications support Private KSN:

    • Kaspersky Security Center 10 Service Pack 1 or later
    • Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 Service Pack 1 or later
    • Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Agentless Service Pack 2
    • Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent

    If you use application versions earlier than Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Agentless Protection Service Pack 2 or earlier than Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent when running Private KSN, we recommend that you use slave Administration Servers for which the use of Private KSN has not been enabled.

  6. Configure the Administration Server connection to the KSN Proxy service:
    • In the TCP port entry field, specify the number of the TCP port that will be used for connecting to KSN Proxy server. The default port to connect to KSN Proxy server is 13111.
    • If you need the Administration Server to connect to KSN Proxy server through a UDP port, select the Use UDP port check box and specify a port number in the UDP port field. By default, this check box is cleared, and UDP port 15111 is used for connecting to KSN Proxy server.
  7. Select the Connect slave Administration Servers to KSN through master Administration Server check box.

    If this check box is selected, slave Administration Servers use the master Administration Server as the KSN proxy server. If this check box is cleared, slave Administration Servers connect to KSN on their own. In this case, managed devices use slave Administration Servers as KSN proxy servers.

    Slave Administration Servers use the master Administration Server as a proxy server if the KSN proxy server section in the properties of slave Administration Servers has the Use Administration Server as proxy server check box selected.

  8. Click OK.

The KSN access settings will be saved.
