McAfee Agent 5.x use of port 80

Jump to solution

Hi,

Latest version of KB66797 (06/11/2019), the McAfee Agent table (screenshot below) seems to indicate that only Agent 4.x uses port 80.

I thought in general that Agent comms to the ePO server/AH were port 80 for repository pulls, and port 443 for secure comms (general agent comms and sending events etc).  

Does Agent 5.x use port 443 for everything now, including repository pulls?

 

Many thanks,

Yes, it uses 443 for repository functions to epo server as well as communication.

Cheers cdinet,

So just to confirm - 5.x doesnt use the 'non-secure' agent to server port (80 by default) at all?

i would like to add that the agent will use the port you have configured into EPO. It is always a best practice to  modify those ports when using EPO and McAfee agent to custom one.
