The OfficeScan Server
The OfficeScan server is the central repository for all agent configurations, security risk logs, and updates.
The server performs two important functions:
Installs, monitors, and manages OfficeScan agents
Downloads most of the components needed by agents. The OfficeScan server downloads components from the Trend Micro ActiveUpdate server and then distributes them to agents.Note:
Some components are downloaded by smart protection sources. See Smart Protection Sources for details.
The OfficeScan server is capable of providing real-time, bidirectional communication between the server and OfficeScan agents. Manage the agents from a browser-based web console, which administrators can access from virtually anywhere on the network. The server communicates with the agent (and the agent with the server) through Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).
