F-Secure Client Security Premium | Software Updates

_Vincent_ W/ Alumni Posts: 14 Security Scout



I'm looking for more informations about how F-Secure Software Updates is working.

Since FSPMC 12.21, I understood that this is FSPMS himself which is downloading software updates, no more the Workstation. Conceptually, this was a good news for me...

Then I am able to define a policy which tell the end-user agent where to download these softwares updates.


My question is... how to configure my FSPMS? Is there somewhere a panel or a file to define proxy settings so the FSPMS can download sources from Internet?


Moreover, I would like to be sure that I understood correctly how this componenet is working. So if someone has documentations, I'll take it.


Best regards,

    Thank you for your response which gave me a lot of interesting informations about how this component works.


    But now, I have another specific question. It's about how to configure FSPMS to download these updates.

    Is there a place to enter proxy settings or does it uses IE settings?


    By default, servers does not have Internet access in our company. So either I am able to define proxy settings to get Internet access or I have to ask for a passthrough without authentication based on my IP address?

    Can you help me with this question?


    Best regards,

    To access internet resources FSPMS uses proxy settings defined in AUA config (c:\Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\FSAUA\program\fsaua.cfg at Windows), property "http_proxies". It does not use proxy settings from IE, only specified in fsaua.cfg.
