Summary

Starting from OSCE XG, you can set up the Edge Server to serve off-premise agents. A frequently asked question is about installing the Edge Server and an OSCE server on the same host. This article sets the expectations about the Edge Server usage scenario.

Details
Public

The Edge Server was implemented to serve off-premise OSCE agents when an administrator was concerned about implementing the OSCE server in a corporate DMZ network (demilitarized zone).

It is recommended to put Edge Server in DMZ to bridge off-premise agents and the OSCE server. However, it is not recommended to install Edge Server and the OSCE server on the same host because:

  • Both Edge Server and the OSCE server will require Internet Information Server (IIS) Service, which may introduce a port conflict issue.
  • It’s not a security best practice to put an OSCE server in DMZ as it may expose the OSCE server to the internet and increase the risk of compromise.
 
Based on the points above, Trend Micro will not support this setup for installing an OSCE server and an Edge Server on the same machine.
