AVG Admin over internet for mobile user

Postby RVicker » Tue Aug 02, 2011 9:02 am

I would like to setup AVG Admin access from the internet so that I can keep track and control of mobile users as well as remote offices.

My concern is that the web page available on port 4158 gives out a lot of information. AVG license (except last three characters), version, Database type, DB connection string, PC names, update status, Update URLs.

Is there anyway to restrict access to this web page while still allowing clients to update?

If you right click the AVG Admin Server icon in the sys tray, then click "Open AVG Server Monitor">Server Settings you will see "Server access" where you can assign a login/password. Does that do the trick?

Hello,

To block access to your http://avgserver:4158 web page.

Click Start>All Programs Or Programs>AVG Remote XXXX Administration>AVG Admin Server Monitor
In AVG Admin Server Monitor window Click "Server Settings..."
Click empty box beside "Login Name" and Password"
Enter in desired Login name and Password
Click OK,OK,Yes

Click Start>All Programs Or Programs>AVG Remote XXXX Administration>AVG Admin Console
In top Left hand corner Click Tools>Shared settings for Stations
In Left window scroll to bottom then Click "Remote Administration "
In Right window enter "Login Name" and "Password" You put in above.
Click Apply then OK
Note: If Server Information is blank you will not be able to enter "Login Name" or "Password." Server information can be entered in by IP address of server Ex: 10.10.10.1 or server name Ex: avgserver
Note: Server name is displayed in top left hand corner of AVG Admin Console - avgserver:4158

In top Left hand corner Click Tools>Shared settings for application servers
In Left window scroll to bottom then Click "Remote Administration "
In Right window enter "Login Name" and "Password" You put in above.
Click Apply then OK
Note: If Server Information is blank you will not be able to enter "Login Name" or "Password." Server information can be entered in by IP address of server Ex: 10.10.10.1 or server name Ex: avgserver
Note: Server name is displayed in top left hand corner of AVG Admin Console - avgserver:4158

Now before you synchronize the settings to all your stations test your settings in a browser.
Open a Browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.
In Address bar type http://your server name or IP address:4158 EX: http:avgserver:4158 or http://10.10.10.1:4158
You should get a box asking for a "User name" and "Password"
Enter in your "User name" and "Password" If correct you should see the AVG Admin Report

To synchronize the settings to all your stations.
Click Start>All Programs Or Programs>AVG Remote XXXX Administration>AVG Admin Console
In Left hand window below AVG DataCenter Right Click "Stations" then Left Click "Synchronize settings"
In Left hand window below AVG DataCenter Right Click "Application servers" then Left Click "Synchronize settings"
Note: Depending on your network and the number of stations/servers connected you may get "Server not responding" message. The Admin Console synchronizes up to 15 stations at a time then waits a few minutes then synchronizes up to 15 more stations. Give the server time before you make any other changes.

Hello,

I just came across this and thought I'd see if anyone knew away to encryt the traffic by applying SSL. Presumably if 4158 is open across the web and the web server is not disabled usernames and passwords could be determined by packet sniffers?

Tim

Hello,

Communication between AVG Admin Console and the AVG Client use Blow-fish encryption (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blowfish_(cipher)) for all communications.

Now regarding the web server part of the AVG Admin Console Http://adminserver:4158

It does not show any passwords, but it will show your List of Stations, List of non-complaint station, and List of served stations. Along with other basic information on server status.

If you are Opening your server for online access then you may want to set a password to the AVG Admin Console to prevent access.
