Re: Required Prerequisites

Hello @Satishnikam ,

For Agent Deployment on Non-Windows systems it uses port 22 (bidirectional)

Ports needed by ePolicy Orchestrator for communication through a firewall
Technical Articles ID: KB66797

System requirements
Installed disk space — 50 MB (minimum), excluding log files
Memory — 512-MB RAM (minimum)
Processor speed — 1 GHz (minimum)

Also :

Install the agent manually on Linux and Macintosh systems using McAfee ePO or the custom agent installation URL.

On Linux and Macintosh systems, McAfee Agent is installed manually using an installation script ( that McAfee ePO creates when you check in the McAfee Agent software package in the McAfee ePO Master Repository and indicate the operating system in use. Ubuntu Linux client systems have a slightly different manual installation method, which is discussed in later sections in the document.

McAfee Agent can be installed from McAfee ePO on Macintosh OS X and Red Hat Enterprise Linux client systems.

Once McAfee Agent is installed on client systems, you can run a Product Deployment task to schedule updates to McAfee Agent and deploy other managed products.
