SVM 2019 Agent Proxy/NoProxy Implementation Logic

SVM 2019 Agent Proxy/NoProxy Implementation Logic

When there is a proxy on the network, in many cases you might be best suited to install agents under managed domain service account which can authenticate through the proxy successfully, especially when LocalSystem account is disallowed to connect online by Proxy or local domain policies.

When there is no proxy or the existing proxy does not require client/user authentication to allow online access, installing the Single Host Agent under LocalSystem account and setting up the netsh winhttp forwarding to the correct proxy server is sufficient to have the Agent bypass the network successfully.

You should use this logic flow to match the correct way to setup your Agent based on the networking requirements of your estate. -L symbolizes installation under "LocalSystem" while -R symbolizes "RunAs" installation under managed domain service account. This type of planning can save you the moment of having to revert to a different configuration due to realizing network proxy blocking and permission problems that prevent SVM 2019 Agents to report back scan results.
