anti-virus protection for a large network
Posted on 2003-03-16
does symantec have software for such a scenerio. and how does it work.
a server is running Anti-Virus Corporate server, the workstations are running the Anti-Virus Client. is it possible to mass update all the systems using the server side only instead of having to update each computer one by one?
also, what will i have to do when it comes to updating multiple servers. if i choose to disable auto-update on the server side. can i just manually tell the server (lets say there are 10) to update it's virus definitions on all 10 computers at the same time?
and finally, when the client side of the software updates their virus definitions do they try to connect to the internet to do so or do they connect to the server to update. i'll assume it's the server but i'd stil like to know for sure
