          The "latest available" information is taken from the Avert web server at http://myavert.avertlabs.com on port 8801.  The most common cause of problems here are either having 8801 blocked at the firewall, or a proxy between the ePO server and McAfee. Can you access http://myavert.avertlabs.com:8801/reportservice.asmx?wsdl from the ePO server?

            We have a proxy server between it at port 8080.


            And i can access http://myavert.avertlabs.com:8801/reportservice.asmx?wsdl

              Okay, great


              Check the orion.log on the ePO server - does it report any errors relating to the 'MyAvert' task? Feel free to post it here if you're not sure...

                  I read in another post KB53619 that is by fixed in version 4.5.

                  • 6. Re: Master repository Status

                    Okay, 403 means forbidden. Which version of ePO are you running?

                    Are there any entries in your proxy logs to indicate that this URL would be blocked?

                      Oops, missed this response when I was writing the other one


                      There are certainly some things related to the myavert task that are fixed in 4.5, so as a test it might be worth installing 4.5 on a test machine and seeing if it can run the task correctly through the same proxy setup that your production server is using...
