A. Creating a Mac client Installer:

To create a Mac client installer, follow these steps:

1. On the Seqrite Endpoint Security cloud portal, go to the Deployment section.

2. Under the Online Installer > Create Client Installer tab, click Create Client Installer button. The Create Client Installer dialog appears.

3. Enter the below details to create the client installer,

- Installer Name:
- Group
- OS Platform
- Setup Type: 
- Validity Period:
- Directory to install:

4. After entering all the details Click on Create, The .TAR file will be created.

The installer without antivirus setup is created and appears in the list on Deployment > Client Installer page. You can download this installer.

Note: With Standalone Installer, you can create Mac client installer with antivirus setup

The administrator computer having Windows OS can install the Mac client using this method.


Before you install Seqrite Mac client, ensure the following requirements.

• Administrator must have an account on the Mac client computers with admin privileges.

• Enable Remote Login and either allow access for all users or only for specific users, such as Administrators. You can find this setting on the Mac client computer under System Preferences > Sharing > Remote Login.

• Ensure that the firewall does not block the port that Secure Shell (SSH) uses, which is by default TCP port 22. This port allows the required communication for remote login.

• If you use the Mac firewall, disable stealth mode. With stealth mode enabled, the remote push installation cannot discover the client through Search Network.

• To disable stealth mode on the Mac computers, do the following,

1. In System Preferences, go to Security and Privacy.

2. Click the Lock icon and provide a password if it is locked.

3. Select Firewall > Firewall Options.

4. Clear the Enable stealth mode checkbox if it is selected.

5. Click OK.

• Mac Seqrite client installer must be created on the Seqrite Endpoint Security cloud.

B. Installing Seqrite Mac Client:

To install Seqrite Mac client using PuTTY, follow these steps:

1. On the Seqrite Endpoint Security cloud portal, download UEMREMOTEINST.TAR from the URL http://dlupdate.quickheal.com/builds/seqrite/uemcp/en/UEMREMOTEINST.tar

2. Download Mac client installer (with/without AV) from the UEM server. These builds will be in the TAR format.

3. Rename the Mac client installer as follows: Mac client installer (without AV) - MCCLAGNT.TAR Mac client installer (with AV) - MCCLAGAV.TAR


5. Copy MCCLAGNT.TAR or MCCLAGAV.TAR to “>/UEMREMOTEINST”. Download directory is the directory where you have downloaded and extracted UEMREMOTEINST.TAR.

Here Download Directory of UEMREMOTEINST.TAR is G Drive G:\UEMREMOTEINST so copied packager MCCLAGNT.TAR or MCCLAGAV.TAR to G:\UEMREMOTEINST folder

6. Open cmd.exe and go to the folder

7. Do one of the following:

• Enter the following command if antivirus is included in the client installer and it will prompt for password after entering this command so the password will be system password.

.\Remote_Installation\Softwares\pscp.exe .\MCCLAGAV.TAR. \Remote_Installation\Scripts\install.sh@:/tmp/

• Enter the following command if antivirus is not included in the client installer .\Remote_Installation\Softwares\pscp.exe .\MCCLAGNT.TAR .\Remote_Installation\Scripts\install.sh@:/tmp/

specifies the user name of the remote Mac client computer such as 'psg'.

specifies the IP address of the remote Mac client computer such as ‘’

Example: .\Remote_Installation\Softwares\pscp.exe .\MCCLAGNT.TAR .\Remote_Installation\Scripts\install.sh psg@

Note: When MCCLAGAV.TAR, as well as MCCLAGNT.TAR files, are present, priority is given to the MCCLAGAV.TAR for installing the Seqrite Mac client.

8. Open .Remote_Installation\Softwares\putty.exe

9. Enter the IP address of the remote Mac client computer and click Open.

10. In the PuTTY terminal window, enter the username and password of an administrator user on the remote computer.

11. Upon getting connected to the remote computer.

12. Type the following command sudo sh/tmp/install.sh

13. A confirmation message appears - "If an earlier version of Seqrite Endpoint Security client is found on the system, then it will be uninstalled automatically. Do you want to continue?? [Yes/No]:”

• If you enter Yes, the installation will proceed.

• If you enter No, the installation will be aborted with the message "Option No has been selected. Installation aborted"

After selecting Yes Antivirus will get install on MAC System

Note: While installing the Mac client for the first time on Mac OS 10.13 and later, the user should allow permission for loading the drivers manually when prompted.
