Disabling port 8082 (Super Agent Comm port)

Howdy.

I do not use super agents in my environment.

We have a Nagios server that uses port 8082. Whenever this server is rebooted, McAfee takes ownership of port 8082 and the Nagios server will not work.

As I dont use port 8082 (I think) is it feasible to disable this port so the Nagios server can use it?

How would I go about this?

Thanks

Hello Imac.

Can you please post Screenshot of port configuration which you have made for your ePO.

ePO Console--->Menu--->Configuration--->Server Settings--->Ports.

Hello Imac.

Your Screenshot clearly shows that Port 8082 is used by McAfee for Agent broadcast communication port.

Yep, I know that it is configured.

The question is, as I dont use Super Agents, can I disable this port?

So you can change that port.

That port is configurable in the ePO console.

Server Settings - Ports - Edit

'Agent Broadcast Communication port'

Set it as you wish, ensuring no conflicts.

The change will roll out in the next policy enforcement.
