Was reading the MCP 1.1 documentation, on Page 14, where the instructions are provided to download and install the software we can read:
Download and install the product files
Download the McAfee Client Proxy product files from the McAfee Content & Cloud Security Portal and
install them on the administrator operating system.
1 Download the product files.
a Log on to the operating system as an administrator.
b Go to the McAfee Content & Cloud Security Portal.
c Enter your user name and password, then click Login.
d Select Software | McAfee Web Gateway | Tools | McAfee Client Proxy.
e Select and save the .zip file for your operating system.
2 Install the product files.
a Run the MCPService.exe file.
b Follow the on‑screen prompts to complete the installation.
Only problem is, MCPService.exe is nowhere to be found in the downloaded ZIP file?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You are probably looking for McpInstaller exe which is inside the zip under Client >> Signed_StandAlone...........
This is the MCP software that goes on the client machines (every one).
If you are planning on using ePO for the rollout and control (highly recommended), you can find the ePO packages also in that zip file you downloaded.
Here is a great article walking you through the different setups: https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-4996
The product is already rolled-out using ePO. I was mainly asking if this was a typo in the documentation or if this file really is supposed to exist?
Got one question, using a manual installation of MCP agent (w/o ePO), is there also a way where we could include manually an MCP policy?
MCP agent seems to be useless unless a policy is in place.
Are you using SaaS ?
If so, you can create a policy in the SaaS control console and then download the installer from there. You then manually install the MCP client and it will be configured to connect to the SaaS
Other than that I don't know of a way to include policies within the installer... maybe it's similar to other Endpoint packages where a policy file can be included in the installation?
yes you can manually implement a MCP Policy. Define the policy with EPO or in Saas, MCP 126.96.36.199 (RTS Version) also has a Policy GenerationSDK included.
Just copy the Policy File to the %programdata%\McAfee\MCP\Policy directory.
