To view and change the Live Update Content policy that is applied to a group When you create a Live Update Settings policy, you have the option of specifying a Group Update Provider (GUP).
The Group Update Provider provides updates to clients in the group, and any subgroups that inherit policies as set on the Clients tab.
When you configure a site to download updates, one or more management servers download the updatesnd places the updates in the database.
If your Group Update Provider computer is at a remote location, and if that remote location uses network address translation (NAT), type the host name.
For more information on GUPs, see: Third-party management refers to the management of Endpoint Protection client content updates using a distribution mechanism other than the Endpoint Protection Manager.
The default TCP port number is 2967, a port that was used in Symantec Anti Virus 10.x and Symantec Client Security 3.x network communications.
If your Group Update Provider computer receives IP addresses with DHCP, you should either assign a static IP address to the computer, or type the host name.
Clicking this button launches a utility that downloads the latest content update.
If you configure unmanaged or local clients to allow changes to the Live Update schedule using a Live Update Settings policy, you can configure clients locally to download updates at specific times.
You can specify whether Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager pushes the policy down to the clients or that the clients pull the policy from Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. If you select pull mode, then by default, clients connect to the management server every 5 minutes, but you can change this default heartbeat interval.
See How the client computer and the management server communicate.
