[KB7848] Write a ProxyMatch expression for configuration of Apache HTTP Proxy with ESET PROTECT (8.x – 9.x)



Apache HTTP Proxy users

ESET Bridge replaces Apache HTTP Proxy in ESET PROTECT version 10. All ESET product versions compatible with Apache HTTP Proxy are in Limited Support status. If you currently use Apache HTTP Proxy, we recommend that you migrate to ESET Bridge.


The tool below creates a simple regular expression in case you have an ESET PROTECT Server with one hostname and IP address. Apache HTTP Proxy also accepts more complex regular expressions.

  1. Click the Create ProxyMatch expression button below to see the example code.

  2. Substitute protect for your hostname, protect.example.local for your FQDN in proper escaped form, and for your IP address. You only need to enter values for items you want to use, for example only IP address, or FQDN and IP.

  3. Click Copy to clipboard to copy the generated code and add the whole segment of the code to your configuration file.
