Hi @NCherbib,

please check that config is Ok with the procedure explained in this doc:


You will see at the footer of this document some other related documents related to proxy config. Review your configurations to make sure  you did not forget something.

Additionally check the following document:


Check also that you have communications between the endpoint and the broker VM. Ping, or any other tool to make sure that there is a physical network path connecting both devices and there is no FW in the middle dropping your traffic or any other issue with your network communications, even on the endpoint tcp/ip stack, that could cause this error.

If the error persists I would recommend to open a TAC support ticket to investigate further.

Hope this helps,

Dear NCherbib, 

Could you check agent status with below command. 
cytool runtime query


The error which you shared coming from XDR agent and not directly related with BrokerVM .

if you have any additional security product which is installed on same server, please also check that logs, also please check windows logs.
