ESET Endpoint Encryption (EEE) Client and EEE Server are separate products from ESET Full Disk Encryption (EFDE)

The article below applies only to the EEE Client or EEE Server and not EFDE. Visit What’s new in ESET Full Disk Encryption to view EFDE content.

  • Enable and send a push install of ESET Endpoint Encryption from the EEE server to a client workstation.


On your client workstation

Make sure that you have enabled File and Printer Sharing through the Windows Firewall to allow for a push install.

Figure 1-1

If the client workstation is not a member of a domain, you need to edit the workstation’s registry key to allow for a push install. In the workstation registry editor, navigate to:


Create a new DWord, name it LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy, and give it a value of 1.


  1. On the ESET Endpoint Encryption Server, click + to expand Workstations, and then click Client Software Development.
  2. If no workstations are listed, click Rescan Network.

If you are unable to push install remotely, check the following:

  • Can you access access \\machinename\admin$ from Windows Explorer using the same username and password you enter in the push install window?
  • Are you entering a netbios domain name? Try to enter the username instead as domain\username.
  • Does the password contain any characters that are not alphanumeric?
  • Are you sure the user has local administrative privileges to the remote PC?
