I've installed the agent on a laptop and installed the antivirus on it.
The laptop will be taken of site and used for other things - is there a way I can update the antivirus through the internet? does it need to contact the epo server to update?
If available in your environment, you should be able to setup a proxy via the McAfee Agent > Repository policy which would allow for updates while outside of internal network.
Well If machine is connected to internet than as per schedule update it will first go to all distributed repositories, ePO server than fall back site which will be McAfee HTTP / FTP. During internet connection it will take updates automatically from McAfee HTTP / FTP site.
thanks for your help
does it do the same for the agent? will it go to the mcafee website even though it has a IP address in the handler section?
