Here’s what you need to know about installing the new Web Protection offering…

NOTE: The new Web Protection offering can be found in RC Agent v10.4.0.

  1. Deploy RC agent v10.4.0 to a Windows machine. This can be done from the Agent menu or via Edit Workstation (or Server) in the Agent version section of the General Settings tab.
  1. After the RC agent v10.4.0 has been installed, you can now enable Web Protection. This can be done from the Settings > Web Protection > Settings menu or on an individual device with Edit Workstation. Select Web Protection and then the desired Web Protection policy to apply.
  1. After enabling Web Protection, the Dashboard’s North pane tab will show a green dot, indicating successful installation and startup. The Summary tab in the RM South Pane will show the status of the Web Protection installation.

Known Issue: All RM Dashboard users, regardless of Web Protection permissions settings, will be able to add whitelist and blacklist entries to the policies from the South pane, Actions option. We expect to resolve this in our next release.

 Known Issue: Custom block message substitution string markers have changed from ! (Exclamation Mark) to the | (Vertical Bar).  We expect to migrate these markers for you in our next release.
