ETP Client configuration settings

An ETP super administrator defines the behavior of ETP Client. This figure shows the behavior settings available on the ETP Client Configuration tab.
  • Enable ETP Client. This option enables ETP Client and allows you to forward DNS traffic to ETP.
  • Allow Users to Disable ETP Client. If enabled, this setting lets end users disable ETP Client on their machine. End users can click Disable when viewing the advanced client settings.
  • ETP Client Identity Reporting. This setting reports the machine name where the ETP Client is installed. If this setting is disabled, event data that's reported to ETP does not include the end user's machine name.
  • Allow Uninstall on Windows. If enabled, this setting allows end users to uninstall ETP Client on their Windows machine. When this setting is disabled, an end user cannot uninstall ETP Client unless they have the entitlement code.

    This setting is available with version 3.0.4 or later.

  • Roll Back ETP Client. Rolls back ETP Client to the previous approved version. If you enable this setting to undo an upgrade, you must also approve the previous ETP Client version. This setting is available with version 2.1.0 and later. For more information about rollback, see ETP Client software rollback.
  • Automatic Upgrades for Critical Patches. Upgrades ETP Client with security patches to fix security vulnerabilities, support OS updates, and resolve critical issues to ETP Client features. You can select to automatically apply these updates when they are available, or you can download, test, and approve the patch like any ETP Client software upgrade. For more information, see Security patches.
  • Configure ETP Client as local computer web proxy. If enabled to do so, this setting configures ETP Client as the local web proxy on the user’s machine. You can choose to overwrite an existing local computer web proxy, overwrite settings when there’s no proxy configured on the machine, or never modify these settings.
    • If you choose Yes to overwrite settings, ETP client is configured as the local web proxy. This setting is useful when your network does not have an on-premises proxy.
    • If you choose Only if there’s no local proxy, ETP client is configured as the local web proxy only when there’s no local proxy already configured. You may want to select this option if you manage the on-premises proxy setting on some computers in your network.
    • If you choose No, ETP client is not configured as the local web proxy on the user’s machine. You may want to select this option if you manage on-premises proxy settings on all computers in your network

    If you want to configure ETP Client as a local web proxy, you can also do this at a policy level. The Enable ETP Client as Proxy setting allows you to select whether you want to configure ETP Client as a web proxy. The options Yes, No, and Only if there’s no local proxy are also available for this setting. The option you select in a policy takes precedence over the selection for Configure ETP Client as a local computer web proxy.

  • Proxy Port. If ETP Client is configured as the local web proxy, the user’s computer listens for traffic on this port. By default, the proxy listens for traffic on port 8080. Even if ETP Client is not configured as the local web proxy, this configuration still applies and may conflict with other applications that try to use this port.

If an ETP administrator makes changes to these behavior settings, the changes are applied to all installed ETP clients in approximately 10 minutes.
