Installing the DXL broker software

Brokers are installed on virtual appliances or physical systems to send and receive messages between security products that are integrated with the DXL. The network of brokers tracks active clients and dynamically adjusts the message routing as needed.

Brokers can be installed on the same system as the McAfee ePO Server, SuperAgents, or Agent Handlers. Use one of these broker components to install DXL brokers:

  • .ova — Used to install on a VMware vSphere appliance
  • .iso — Used to install on virtual appliances (including VMware vSphere) or on a physical system
  • DXL broker package — Used to install on a Linux system, a Microsoft Windows Server system, or on a system running a supported operating system in Amazon Web Services (AWS)
