We have just installed McAfee and found that we cannot update it through ISA 2004. I know now there is a McAfee product that has a ISA plug in but I am stuck with this version.

Hi Mark

I need a bit more information here.

What version of McAfee have you installed, and why can't you update it through the ISA server ?

Thanks
Si

It is McAfee Toal Protection for Small Business 4.5 and the auto update feature fails when trying to connect. I now know there is a product from McAfee for use with ISA 2004 but I am now commited to this othe product.

Hi Mark

As far as I am aware, there is not a version for use with ISA 2004, nor any version of ISA for that matter.

What you would need to do is to install the product on a machine with internet access, yes, you can specify just machine to access the download site and then you can get all the other machines to download from this 1 machine by using the Rumour Technology built in.

i would use the AV installed on the ISA Server and then get your other machines to download the updates from the ISA server.

Do you understand what I am saying or am I talking another language to you ?

Thanks
Si

The ISA server (SBS 2003) does update no problem but I do not know how to get the clients to update from the server as the only option seems to update from the net.

You need to set the ISA server as a Relay Server and all of the other machines will update from the relay server

Log in to your account and go to Help, then the Product Manual
