Installing applications using a remote installation task
Kaspersky Security Center allows you to install applications on devices remotely, using remote installation tasks. Those tasks are created and assigned to devices through a dedicated Wizard. To assign a task to devices more quickly and easily, you can specify devices in the Wizard window in one of the following ways:
- Select networked devices detected by Administration Server. In this case, the task is assigned to specific devices. The specific devices can include devices in administration groups as well as unassigned devices.
- Specify device addresses manually, or import addresses from list. You can specify NetBIOS names, DNS names, IP addresses, and IP subnets of devices to which you want to assign the task.
- Assign task to a device selection. In this case, the task is assigned to devices included in a selection created earlier. You can specify the default selection or a custom one that you created.
- Assign task to an administration group. In this case, the task is assigned to devices included in an administration group created earlier.
For correct remote installation on a device with no Network Agent installed, the following ports must be opened: a) TCP 139 and 445; b) UDP 137 and 138. By default, these ports are opened on all devices included in the domain. They are opened automatically using the remote installation preparation utility.
