Registering OfficeScan to Control Manager

  1. Go to Administration > Settings > Control Manager.
  2. Specify the entity display name, which is the name of the OfficeScan server that will display in Control Manager.

    By default, entity display name includes the server computer's host name and this product’s name (for example, Server01_OSCE).


    In Control Manager, OfficeScan servers and other products managed by Control Manager are referred to as "entities".

  3. Specify the Control Manager server FQDN or IP address and the port number to use to connect to this server. Optionally connect with increased security using HTTPS.
    • For a dual-stack OfficeScan server, type the Control Manager FQDN or IP address (IPv4 or IPv6, if available).

    • For a pure IPv4 OfficeScan server, type the Control Manager FQDN or IPv4 address.

    • For a pure IPv6 OfficeScan server, type the Control Manager FQDN or IPv6 address.


    Only Control Manager 5.5 SP1 and later versions support IPv6.

  4. If the IIS web server of Control Manager requires authentication, type the user name and password.
  5. If you will use a proxy server to connect to the Control Manager server, specify the following proxy settings:
    • Proxy protocol

    • Server FQDN or IPv4/IPv6 address and port

    • Proxy server authentication user ID and password

  6. Decide whether to use one-way communication or two-way communication port forwarding, and then specify the IPv4/IPv6 address and port.
  7. To check whether OfficeScan can connect to the Control Manager server based on the settings you specified, click Test Connection.

    Click Register if a connection was successfully established.

  8. If the Control Manager server is version 6.0 SP1 or later, a message appears prompting you to use the Control Manager server as the update source for the OfficeScan integrated Smart Protection Server. Click OK to use the Control Manager server as the integrated Smart Protection Server update source or Cancel to continue using the current update source (by default, the ActiveUpdate server).
  9. If you change any of the settings on this screen after registration, click Update Settings after changing the settings to notify the Control Manager server of the changes.
  10. If you no longer want the Control Manager server to manage OfficeScan, click Unregister.
