Auto update for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 7.1.0 Problem

Hi All
When running an Auto update for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 7.1.0 I get the following message:

Starting update session
Checking update packages from repository NAIFtp.
Error occurred while downloading file SiteStat.xml.
Checking update packages from repository NAIHttp.
Error occurred while downloading file SiteStat.xml.
Unable to find a valid repository.
Closing update session

I have other machines on the network built in exactly the same way, which allow me run the updates.

Any ideas on how to rectify this problem.

    Maybe you can try to run this update manually?

    Just another suggestion... If only this files gives a problem, you could download the file manually, and then change the host file for this computer, making it use a local address.

    Accepted Solution

    Quickfix: Do you have Windows Firewall running? Try pulling as per R7AF's post

    To solve this ongoing, you can setup the clients to update from a local depository and have a fileserver do the download from NAI FTP.

    This will also cut down on WAN traffic and should not give above error.
