Symantec LIVE update

Last Modified: 2013-12-09

I have issues using Symantec Anti-Virus verions, running on server 2003 R2 with service pack 2, the problems perisits in LIVE update...once logged in you should be able to connect using LIVEupdate to download latest virus definition, but it throws back an error...LU1803: Liveupdate failed while getting your updates
It then suggests you should try connecting later (which i did) or alternatively install latest version of LiveUpdate as it's possible the LiveUpdate database is corrupt/damaged. Having also done this and re-booted the sever, following advice from symantec website  it still comes back with same error.

Any suggestions?
