F-secure Antivirus on Windows 2003 Terminal Server

Hi
F-secure Anti-Virus 8.00 build 14130 on several Termnal Servers on Win2003.
I have seen some threads in Expert Exchange where they recommend AVG, Trend or Nod32.

I guess its all about taste and what you like, but I have also read that some handle Terminal Services better than others.
I tried to fidn out if F-secure will handle Terminal Service on 2003 but have not been able to confirm this anywhere.
I can see on running Processes that the process for F-secure is running for EACH user.
Is that normal. It must be like running 20 x Antivirus on one server (when 20 users logged on). That must affect preformace.

Does anyone know if F-secure would work ok on Win2003 Terminal Server and would any antivirus open a new process for each user or would it work only running in one profile (admin)?


Kind Regards
Morten

I'm afraid I don't have much experience with this particular product. Perhaps you could email F-Secure support or have a look in their support forums.

Apologies for not being to help further.

Hello Morten,

Are you planning to migrate from F-Secure to another product?? There is a website that gives good information and comparisons between the different antivirus(es) - http://www.av-comparatives.org/

As a generic statement, I can say that any mainstream antivirus product should be able to support a computer without any problems, as long as we install the correct product on it. Lets say, if you install F-Secure Anti-Virus Server Protection for Terminal Services and Citrix Servers on this Windows 2003 Terminal Server then it should work fine. I haven't worked specifically with F-Secure, so I am unable to provide directions on how to do it, but maybe, you can click on the 'Request Attention' right below your question and ask for help from the administrator. You ask ask them to send this questions to the top experts in each relevant category, this way your question would reach maximum number of experts and someone is very likely to be able to give you exact directions.

Hope it helps.

request attention did not work as they say there are members of the comunity that is trying to help.

If anyone else has experiences with F-secure and Terminal Server, please give some advice if its good or there are better solutions

Kind Regards

I can probably suggest documentation that would help you install the F-Secure Anti-Virus on the Terminal Server that you have.

http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA/downloads/documentation/manuals/#server

Hope it helps.

Hi
Thanks for comming back again.
I have already installed it but the problem is that I can not find any review on how it preforms on Terminal Server. Even when following the instruction it still starts a scanner in each profile and if you have 20-40 users, it just seems to take so much resourses and I do expect it is causing slow preformance on the server.
