Cynet 360 Windows Agent Installation
The Cynet 360 Light Agent for Windows is packaged in the installer file “CynetMSI.msi”, Contained inside the Zip file this MSI file contains all the relevant connection information to connect to the relevant Cynet server in Cynet SAAS environment.
The agent can be installed using the GUI by double clicking the MSI file or using the Command prompt.
When manually installing the light agent using the command prompt ensure it is being executed in an Administrator command prompt window or with Administrator privileges. The MSI requires elevated privileges to create a service on the host, to ensure the Cynet EPS will remain persistent on the host.
If you would like to manually install the agent with additional parameters, you can do it by specifying the arguments as part of the MSI installation process.
A typical command line installation will look like this:
msixexec /I CyentMSI.msi IP=”<Server IP>” PORT=”443” -msi /quiet
The <Server IP> parameter should reflect your Cynet server’s IP address. By default, Cynet servers will accept incoming scan data on TCP port 443, unless configured otherwise on the server.
To validate the Cynet agent is running on a Windows endpoint, open the Task Manager and look for Cynet process. The excepted result will include two processes running in memory.
CynetEPS.exe - Cynet Main process
CynetMS.exe - Cynet memory scanner
TASK MANAGER FOR A WINDOWS 7 HOST
TASK MANAGER FOR A WINDOWS 10 HOST
|NOTE: Installing the Cynet MSI Package creates the CynetLauncher service. This service runs once at system boot and then stops. When it runs, it launches the CynetEPS process and then stops the service. It does not need to be running for the agent to be working properly.|
To uninstall the Cynet light agent from Windows host, the following command can be used to remove all components. This command should be run in an Administrator command prompt or with Administrator privileges to successfully remove all components.
msiexec /x CynetMSI.msi /qn
Alternatively, the Cynet agent can be uninstalled from the Windows Control Panel. Navigate to the Programs and Features. Select the CynetEPS program and click Uninstall.
|NOTE: With the release of version 3.8.3, Cynet support uninstall password protection. Once configured Cynet will prompt the user for a password before completing the uninstallation process.|

echo -e "<Server_IP> -port <Server_Port> -lightagent -tknv 1 -tkn <token> -msi” /tmp/CynetEPSArguments.txt
NOTE: Please note the Argument file name is case sensitive and should be named EXACTLY – CynetEPSArguments.txt and placed in the /tmp directory.
Once the file is created place the Argument file in the same folder as the installation package and run the desired action based on the table below:
|Installation||Sudo dpkg -I cyneteps.deb||rpm -ivh cyneteps.rpm|
|Uninstall||Sudo dpkg –purge cyneteps||rpm -e cyneteps|
|Validate Installation||Sudo dpkg -l cyneteps||rpm -qa |grep cynet|
