To download, unpack, install and configure your ESET server solution, follow the steps below:

  1. Download the installation package for your ESET server solution:

  1. Use the following command to run the installation package from the shell (replace packagename with the name of the ESET installation package you downloaded in step 1):

sh ./packagename
  1. To configure your ESET server solution, edit esets.cfg, verifying that your ESET-issued Username and Password are entered correctly when you do so. Click one of the links below for your ESET server solution manual, with complete instructions on configuring esets.cfg:

Step 3 does not apply to version 8.x and later users. Proceed to step 4.
