Rogue Sensor deployments and computers on Wireless subnets

Jump to solution

I am curious how others are addressing this. How to cover wireless subnets. Since most computers that use wireless move between wired and wireless networks, how to make sure the wireless subnets remain covered.

 

Thanks for any help here!

Re: Rogue Sensor deployments and computers on Wireless subnets

When a sensor is installed, it is going to listen to traffic on whatever nic is connected at the time, whether wired or wireless.  Just be aware of kb72808.  You also don't want it to pick up external traffic and start sending in random external systems as rogue to your environment.  Install on internal systems only.

Environment

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) 5.x
McAfee Rogue System Detection (RSD) 5.0.x

Problem

When the RSD Sensor is installed on a computer with a Virtual Private Network (VPN) client, there might be conflicts with the RSSensor.exe process and the VPN client, which could cause a system crash.

Cause

The RSD Sensor is designed to be installed on static computers in the environment to collect Layer 2 and DHCP traffic.

Solution

The RSD Sensor is not supported on a system running a VPN client.
