    Mcafee Agent, Firewalls and ICMP

      All,

       

      I'm in the process of deploying Mcafee to our heavily fortified environment, I have a number of questions regarding the way the agent deploys from the console, from running a wireshark trace it appears that the EPO servers attempts to PING the destination for the agent before commencing the deployment process, this causes issues as the ICMP packets are blocked by the firewall and then the deployment process appears to halt because the host can't be found.

       

      I could be misreading this and it could be something else, Can you advise if its possible to prevent the ICMP prior to deployment, we appear to have all the other ports open required by the servers.

       

      Can you assist? anyone had this issue before, working with deployment via a firewall?
