Second EPO server in DMZ

Hi to all,

I hope this is the right section

I have an EPO 4.0 server working for 150 pcs on LAN, and everything is OK.

I have also neaer 200 notebooks, working rarely on LAN and more time remotely on Internet.

These notebooks can download updates from, but cannot reach EPO server in LAN, so I'm thinking about a second EPO server in DMZ.

I red something here, but is there a guide for this scenario?

I suppose a new agent is needed because notebooks have to comunicate primarily with this new EPO server in DMZ and only some time with the firs EPO in LAN

Can someone help me? 🙂

RE: Second EPO server in DMZ

do the laptops never connect in to the main network over the internet via VPN for policy updates/reporting?

i remember reading this ancient thread about it, it sounds like an interesting idea. And it wouldnt suprise me if Mcafee implement it in a future release. Microsoft are doing it with SCCM i believe, where there is like an external facing gateway server in the DMZ meaning clients do not need to establish a VPN connection to be managed

ePO 4.5 introduces the concept of an "agent handler" which sits in the DMZ and communicates between internet clients and the internal ePO server. You can read more about this on the McAfee support portal in the beta section.

Looks very cool!
