Avast EP: Updating the individual components without a direct Internet connection

Avast Endpoint Protection - Updating the individual components without a direct Internet connection

To reduce bandwidth required to download program and virus definitions updates, Avast Endpoint Protection products come with the update Mirror. It automatically receives updates from the AVAST update servers and distributes them to all the Avast Endpoint Protection clients (managed clients) on your network to ensure they are always completely up to date.

The primary Mirror is installed automatically during the installation of Avast Small Office Administration or Avast Enterprise Administration. If the host computer is not connected to the Internet, the individual components can be updated by use of so-called "Off-line updates" as shown in the following table. The procedure usually consists of three steps - downloading the required files(s) from any computer that can access the Internet, transfering the files using removable media, network share, or other available method, and installing the particular update.

  Component Module Off-line update Required file Note  
  Avast Small Office Administration Program Yes Installer package 1)  
  Avast Small Office Administration Mirror data No N/A 2)  
  Avast Enterprise Administration Program Yes Installer package 3)  
  Avast Enterprise Administration Mirror data No N/A 2)  
  Avast Endpoint Protection client Program Yes Standalone installer (client)    
  Avast Endpoint Protection client Virus definitions Yes Avast VPS update

  Avast Endpoint Protection Suite client Virus definitions Yes Avast VPS update    
  Avast Endpoint Protection Suite Plus client Program Yes Standalone installer (client)

Notes:

  1. "Client + Small Office Administration Console including Mirror" package contains the Mirror data but it's not updated on regular basis. It should only be used for updating the program.

  2. It is possible to copy the data from another (updated) Mirror if required.

  3. The installer downloads the latest Mirror data from the Internet (AVAST update servers) or another Mirror.

The Off-line update procedures are not recommended for regular use because they are less effective than the standard (automatic) updates. The Off-line update should only be used for emergency situations or for troubleshooting purposes.
