Configuring clients to download content from an external LiveUpdate server

By default,
Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
provides updates to Windows clients. To help mitigate network overloads for Windows client updates, you should also let clients get updates from a LiveUpdate server. Linux and Mac clients must get updates from a LiveUpdate server, or you can set up the Apache web server as a reverse proxy to download updates from the management server. See:
You may also want to establish communication between a proxy server and
Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
so that it can connect with Symantec subscription services. A proxy server can provide an additional level of protection between your site and an external Symantec LiveUpdate server. See:
