McAfee Agent 5.0.2 license validation fails ( failed)

Hi there

Does someone else see this message in mcscript.log or mcscript_error.log?

2016-03-16 23:00:05 I #7748 licmgr Downloading file from

2016-03-16 23:00:05 I #7748 network URL( request, Trying for next proxy

2016-03-16 23:00:05 I #7748 network Setting proxy info port:8080 scope:0

2016-03-16 23:00:05 I #7748 network URL( request submitting

2016-03-16 23:00:05 X #7748 network snd head 164 CONNECT HTTP/1.1  Host:  User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; SPIPE/3.0; Windows) McAfee Agent  Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive  

2016-03-16 23:00:05 X #7748 network rcv head 37 HTTP/1.0 200 Connection established

2016-03-16 23:00:05 X #7748 network rcv head 2 

2016-03-16 23:00:05 I #7748 network URL( request, failed with curl error 35, Response 0, Connect code 200,

We are usually using a proxy and first we thought about a proxy issue. But for testing purposes proxy has been disabled and port 443 has been allowed on firewall. Error still appears.

The error does not appear if client has been connected to public internet. So it seems to be a firewall issue but as port 443 has already been allowed I do not know which setting needs a modification to prevent this message.

Any help would be appreciated.

kind regards
