App Control: Is it possible to restrict access to the web console on port 443

Environment

  • App Control Console: All Supported Versions
  • Windows Server: All Supported Versions

Question

Is it possible to restrict access to the Console on port 443?

Answer

Warning: Carbon Black does not recommend making changes to the default IIS configuration outside of the requirements listed in the Operating Environment Requirements.

There is no configuration setting available in the App Control Console to configure or restrict port 443. Restricting access to the Server Address via Port 443 is outside the scope of Support but could be done through the use of Firewall Rules, IIS Manager, or other network settings.

Additional Notes

  • Warning: Agents connect to the Server Address via Port 443 to download critical files related to Agent upgrades, Yara Rules, and Trusted Server Certificate files.
  • If any restrictions on port 443 are set, please update the Resource Download Location to point the agents to an alternative web server to get the files from per this KB.
