    Can anyone tell me if Eset Remote Administrator can support a multi-forest environment where there is no trust between forests?

    To clarify Forest (A) has the Eset Remote Administrator Console and some servers that have NOD32 AV installed. Forest (B) has no Eset Remote Administrator Console but has some clients and servers which have NOD32 AV installed as well but report back to the Eset Remote Administrator Console in Forest (A).

    I know that McAfee for example uses a proprietary protocol "Spipe" which works like HTTP, so no domain information is used when the McAfee Agent downloads new policies from the EPO server. What is Eset/NOD32 equivalent protocol?

    Did you find out anymore information about multi-forest. We are in the middle of a forest migration and one of our update servers has been moved but the clients are not reporting back to it.

    The administration servers have no domain dependencies. Client access to your admin server is controlled via setting a password to attach for client updates and/or the update mirror. Clients outside the forest your RAS operates in can connect so long as they are configured with the correct credentials, can resolve the hostname, and there's nothing on the network blocking the traffic.

    Turned out to be a Firewall Issue. All is good now.
