Configuring F-Secure AUA to use Policy Manager Proxy or HTTP proxy

This article describes how you can configure F-Secure Automatic Update Agent (AUA) to use F-Secure Policy Manager Proxy (PMP) or HTTP proxy.

To configure AUA to use PMP, do as follows:

  1. Edit the following AUA configuration file: /etc/opt/f-secure/fsaua/fsaua_config.
  2. In the update_proxies configuration directive, specify the proxy to be used in format
    update_proxies=hostSmiley Tongueort
    . Multiple proxies can be specified by using a comma as a separator. An example:
    update_proxies=proxy.domain.com:80
  3. To take the changes into use, restart AUA.

If desired, you can use an HTTP proxy with AUA. To use an HTTP proxy with AUA, do as follows:

  1. Configure the HTTP proxies by editing the following AUA configuration file:
    /etc/opt/f-secure/fsaua/fsaua_config
    .
  2. In the HTTP_Proxies configuration directive, specify the proxy to be used in format
    http_proxies=[user[Smiley Tongueassword]@]host[Smiley Tongueort]
    . Multiple proxies can be specified by using a comma as a separator.

    An example:

    http_proxies=http-proxy-for-the-domain.acme.com:80
    .
  3. To take the changes into use, restart AUA (
    /etc/init.d/fsaua restart
    ).

Note: If the update is still unsuccessful, check the FSAUA logfile to find out if the client connects to our backweb servers (fsbwserver.f-secure.com). If it does not connect to the backweb servers, check the error message displayed. You can easily locate the entries by searching for the "fsaua" string.
