We would require Captive portal Exception for Specific Destination . Reason behind this is Mcfaee agents are not communicating with Mcafee EPO server without Logging to Captive Portal . The mcafee agent uses port 80 and 443 for server to client communication .

Scenario - Mcafee EPO server is in 10.254.48.0 network and Mcafee Agents are in 10.254.76.0 network . Agents uses port 80 and 443 . But unless enduser logs in to the Barracuda Captive portal ,mcafee agent to server communication is not possible . 

Since all the users in the organization does not use internet every day ,they dont login to Captive portal . So the mcafee Antivirus is not updated till they login to captive portal . 

 

An ticket has been raised for the same issue - Ticket ID #02973268

Another option could be to create a firewall rule that allows unauthenticated users to connect to the update server and place it above the other rules that require the authentication. That would effectively create the captive portal exception.
