The article concerns the following versions of Kaspersky Security Center 10:

  • Service Pack 3 (version 10.5.1781.0)
  • Service Pack 2 Maintenance Release 1 (version 10.4.343)

If it is impossible to connect your devices to the virtual Administration Server directly, you can manage it through a connection gateway. You can use an update agent as a connection gateway for a group of managed devices.

To assign a device as an update agent:

  1. Open the properties of the Administration Server.
  2. Go to Update agents and click Add.
  3. In the drop-down menu, select Add device from group.

Adding an update agent to Kaspersky Security Center 10

  1. Add the device and click OK.
  2. Select the device you have added from the list. Click Properties.
  3. Click Gateway in the left menu. Select the checkbox Connection gateway and Initiate gateway connection to gateway from Administration Server.

The device will be assigned a role of an update agent and configured as a connections gateway.
