I need help explaning communication between Mcafee Agent and External Agent Handler of ePO server. I have a customer who is trying to force communication only via https. Is this possible?
This is the customer example:
Even after we removed published ip address of our AH, test endpoint took internal ip address of AH ( 172.27.1.2). As you can see from logs, MA is trying to connect to fqdn, NetBIOS and internal ip address:
For security reason we would like to understand is there any way to force communication only via https and bypass any other communication methods like NetBIOS and IP.
Agent Handler allows you to directly manage systems behind the DMZ (aka off prem); that will mean a publish IP - perhaps a superagent / remote repository would be a better choice if the agents will stay on prem. Still, begs the question - What is the customer trying to accomplish?
