Use Norton Enterprise or Norman Virus Control. We use Norman as it needs not as much resources and is more compatible to older operating systems.

If you want to protect your workstations against viruses it's best to set up a personal virusprotection on the workstation itself. By installing Norton Antivirus on the Server you only protect the server. It's not possible to totally prevent viruses from reaching your workstations. The other way round it's not a good idea to scan your workstations from your server. (performance, access rights, ...)

Or what do you want to do? Sounds like you want to use your server as a gateway with a firewall, not really the same as an antivirus.

I agree with jarunik, you have to install antivirus on the workstations as well. Norton Corporate Edition would be good for this - and you can use the server as the command centre where you set your policies (what you want scanned and what to do when a virus is found) and also have the server download the updates and the workstations to get the updates from the server.
