Enabling a push server
Dec 4, 2023
In Kaspersky Security Center, a distribution point can work as a push server for the devices managed through the mobile protocol and for the devices managed by Network Agent. For example, a push server must be enabled if you want to be able to force synchronization of KasperskyOS devices with Administration Server. A push server has the same scope of managed devices as the distribution point on which the push server is enabled. If you have several distribution points assigned for the same administration group, you can enable push server on each of the distribution points. In this case, Administration Server balances the load between the distribution points.
You might want to use distribution points as push servers to make sure that there is continuous connectivity between a managed device and the Administration Server. Continuous connectivity is needed for some operations, such as running and stopping local tasks, receiving statistics for a managed application, or creating a tunnel. If you use a distribution point as a push server, you do not have to use the Do not disconnect from the Administration Server option on managed devices or send packets to the UDP port of the Network Agent.
A push server supports the load of up to 50,000 simultaneous connections.
To enable push server on a distribution point:
- In the main menu, click the settings icon () next to the name of the required Administration Server.
The Administration Server properties window opens.
- On the General tab, select the Distribution points section.
- Click the name of the distribution point on which you want to enable the push server.
The distribution point properties window opens.
- On the General section, enable the Run push server option.
- In the Push server port field, type the port number. You can specify number of any unoccupied port.
- In the Address for remote hosts field, specify the IP address or the name of the distribution point device.
- Click the OK button.
The push server is enabled on the selected distribution point.
