In order to complement the deployment of protection profiles, Panda Security provides a Windows application which can be installed on your main or secondary domain controller to help Panda GateDefender Performa correctly identify users in your network domain.
This way, all domain users are identified and the selected protection profile is applied.
However, if when running the connection test with the agents, the program indicates that there is no connection, you should check the following:
- By default, the Panda GateDefender Performa domain agent communicates via port 9500 TCP. Therefore, if no connection is detected with the domain agent, check the firewall configuration in the domain controller and check that TCP port 9500 is not being filtered by any firewall.
- On Windows 2008 Servers, the system firewall is enabled by default. If this is your case, then check that the firewall configuration allows this communication.
- The Panda GateDefender Performa Domain Agent must be started in the domain controller (it is executed as a Windows operating system service).
After checking the configuration, open Panda GateDefender Performa administration web console, go to System >> Domain users >> Users authentication and run the connection test again by clicking theTestconnection with agents button.
