How to install the product on Linux

Information applies to:

Products
Panda Adaptive Defense 360
Panda Endpoint Protection
Panda Endpoint Protection Plus

Attention!

The instructions indicated in this article apply to the traditional management platform. If your query refers to a product based on Aether Platform, please access the article on the How to install the agent of products based on Aether Platform in Windows, Linux, MacOS and Android?, or else, check the Knowledge Base, where you will find answers to frequently asked questions.

If you still haven't switched to Aether, please contact your sales representative or reseller and request the platform migration.

To install the product so that it integrates seamlessly with the Panda server, you must download the installer from the administration console.

IMPORTANT! Before you proceed, please ensure the installation requirements of Adaptive Defense and Endpoint Protection on Linux systems are met.

How to download the installer for Linux

  1. Go to the administration console.
  2. Click the Installation tab.
  3. In Download installer for, select Linux.
  4. Select the group to be used during installation and click Download.
  5. The name of the downloaded installer is LinuxWAAgent.run, and it is a self-extracting file consisting of a Linux shell script with an attached archive containing the product files. The archive is a compressed tar.gz file.

    You can also send the installation link by email. To do so, click Send by email. Users will automatically receive an email with the download link. Alternatively, you can copy the installation link and launch it on the computers to install the protection on.
  6. After downloading the installer, you must assign execute permissions to it through the file manager or running the following command:

    # chmod +x LinuxWAAgent.run
  7. Run the installer. Run it as the ‘root’ user for the installation to run correctly. To do so, double-click the installer from the file manager or run the following command from the command-line terminal:

    # ./LinuxWAAgent.run
  8. The installer decompresses the files and runs a shell script, post_install.sh, which takes care of post-installation tasks, such as writing configuration files, launching processes, etc.
  9. After installation is complete, the following processes must be running:

    • PCOP_AgentService
    • PCOPSchedule

      You can check the process status by running the following command:

      # ps aux | grep PCOP

Communication via proxy server

If the computer uses a proxy server to connect to the Internet, you must configure the product to use the right proxy server. To do so, edit the proxy.conf file, entering the proxy server information using the following format:

proxy:port:user:password

There are two instances of this file:

  • /opt/PCOPAgent/proxy.conf
    Contains the settings used by the agent to send messages to the PCOP server.
  • /opt/PCOPAgent/Common/Binaries/PcopSigUpdater-bin/proxy.conf
    Contains the settings used by the process that takes care of updating the signature files.

You can also define the configuration in a more visual way, by running the proxyConf.sh script from the /opt/PCOPAgent or /opt/PCOPAgent/Common/Binaries/PcopSigUpdater-bin folders, depending on the proxy configuration file to edit.

Only basic authentication is supported in communications via a proxy server.
