antivirus for linux

Hello experts,

one of my pc acts as file server using samba for windows clients. My question is simple. What are the possibilities to have antivirus in my debian 3.0 server to scan all home directories of my windows clients? I have no GUI on my server !!! Are any free antiviruses available ?

thanks

Map network drive on ur linux server as root (/home dir) from windows client. And scan that logical drive. Very simple solution for you if you dont want to search more. Grisoft (AVG) offers antivirus for free for single user.

Actually, my link mentioned it if you visited the site at:
http://www.linux.org/apps/all/System/Anti-Virus.html

Clam was the third link down.

But, don't worry about it, long as you have the solution.
