How to disable IPS data submission on Symantec Endpoint Protection for Mac clients
Last Updated November 16, 2016
In both the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) console and the Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) for Mac client interface (12.1.4 or later), you have the option in the user interface to disable the submission of virus and spyware detection data. There is no comparable interface setting for disabling IPS submissions, but you can disable IPS submissions by running a command on a client computer.
To disable IPS data submission
Open Terminal (by default, located in /Applications/Utilities/Terminal).
Enter the following commands.
Note: After you enter the first command, you may be prompted to enter your administrative password. When you do, the password does not appear in the Terminal window. Press Enter once you have finished typing the password in the Terminal window, and then enter the second command.
