Unable to view Mcafee Agent log via website

Hi Everyone,

I just implemented McAfee EPO 4.5 but I cannot view the computers that are installed with Mcafee Agent logs via Port 8081 - http://computername:8081
I can telnet to the computer via port 8081 so the port is open.

Can anyone advise me any step that I might have missed out?

Thank you.

Are the logs not accessible via port 1934?
eg http://computername:1934

That is the default if I remember correctly.

Hi Antony,

Nope the logs cannot be accessed via 1934. The port should be 8081 because from the EPO server, when I select Agent->Show Agent Log, it brings me to http://IPaddress:8081.

I tried using both computer name and ipaddress via port 8081 but it failed. It showed HTTP 403 Forbidden.
Quick look on the McAfee Community threads brought this up

"I took a look to the problem and I found where it came from :

From the ePolicy Orchestrator Web Console:
1. Click the "Systems" menu
2. Click the "Policies" sub-menu
3. From the "Product" drop-down list, select "McAfee Agent"
4. Click on your policy ("My Default" by default) to edit it
5. Click the "Logging" tab
6. Tick "Enable remote access to log" checkbox
7. Click "Save" on the lower right corner

You just have to refresh the client agents for them to apply the modification, and it works!"
