IP Address Reported by McAfee Agent to ePO

Hello,

  Currently the IP I see reported in by the Agent is captured from the Registery and passed up to the ePO  which will show only Private IPs if it is off the internal network.  Is there a way in newer releases to see what the actual public IP is from where the device is checking in?  Would like to know when devices are off network what the real IP incase a device is lost.

I had asked the question once before but that was in 2015 hoping the answer is different now.

   Thanks,

      Evan

The agent can't report what any router or ISP nats that to.  We report what the OS tells us is the IP.

So since the client checks in on HTTPS port 443 is there no way for the ePO to show the real nat'd IP of where that request came from for that client?  Instead of showing only what the client captures from a registry entry.

No, the agent has no visibility into that.  The properties are local to the system and even Windows has no knowledge of what that natted IP address would be.  It is something occurring beyond the system itself.
