INTRODUCTION

The Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite (L.E.M.S.S) Application Server accesses the web to download content or components critical to the functionality of L.E.M.S.S., and include platform components or 3rd party vendor content. L.E.M.S.S. administrators need to notify their firewall personnel that new URLs will need to be allowed to pass through the firewall.

  • cache.lumension.com - Used to download binaries stored on Lumension GSS. Resolves to Akamai Cloud

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

For more information on Lumension Patch and Remediation and access to vendor locations for remediation binaries, see KB 539.

For additional information on firewall configurations for Microsoft Windows content, review the article on Microsoft’s TechNet Library: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708605.aspx

In the future, additional URLs may be required, depending on the content sources that you are interested in receiving. An important consideration to remember is that these URLs should be specified as is and the use of IP address equivalents is discouraged since IP addresses frequently change in DNS round-robin scenarios, etc.
