SNS ProTip for ePO: MA 5.0 requires communication over a secure SSL port

Version 1

    If the agent to server secure port (443 by default) is disabled, MA 5.0 cannot communicate to the EPO server. To restore communication, you will need to re-enable SSL and redeploy the McAfee Agent. MA 5.0.1 will support non-SSL communication.
