  • with Internet Information Server (IIS) 6.0, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 8.5, or Apache 2.0.6x

Target client

  • The target client must have Internet Explorer 7.0 or later.

  • Users must use an administrator account to log on to the client.


    If the target client runs Windows 7, enable the built-in administrator account first. Windows 7 disables the built-in administrator account by default. For more information, refer to the Microsoft support site (

Target client running Windows XP, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Vista, Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2, or SBS 2003, 2008, 2011

Users must perform the following steps:

  1. Launch Internet Explorer and add the Security Server URL (such as https://<Security Server name>:4343/SMB/console/html/client) to the list of trusted sites. On Windows XP, access the list by going to Tools > Internet Options > Security tab, selecting the Trusted Sites icon, and clicking Sites.
  2. Modify the Internet Explorer security setting to enable Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls. On Windows XP, go to Tools > Internet Options > Security tab, and click Custom level.

Target client running Windows Vista

Users must enable Protected Mode. To enable Protected Mode, in Internet Explorer, click Tools > Internet Options > Security tab.


If you have a mixed environment consisting of pure IPv4, pure IPv6, and dual-stack clients, the Security Server must have both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses so that all clients can connect to the Internal Web Page on the Security Server.

Send the following instructions to users to install the Security Agent from the Internal Web Page. To send an installation notification through email, see Installing with Email Notification.

  1. Log on to the client using an administrator account.
  2. Open an Internet Explorer window and type one of the following:
    • Security Server with SSL:

      https://<Security Server name or IP Address>:4343/SMB/console/html/client

    • Security Server without SSL:

      http://<Security Server name or IP Address>:8059/SMB/console/html/client

  3. Click Install Now to start installing the Security Agent.

    The installation starts. Allow ActiveX control installation when prompted. The Security Agent icon appears in the Windows Task Bar after installation.


    For a list of icons that display on the Windows Task Bar, see Checking the Security Agent Status.

If users report that they cannot install from the Internal Web Page, try the following methods.

  • Verify that client-server communication exists by using ping and telnet.

  • Check if TCP/IP on the client is enabled and properly configured.

  • If you are using a proxy server for client-server communication, check if the proxy settings are configured correctly.

  • In the web browser, delete Trend Micro add-ons and the browsing history.
