In an attempt to resolve a problem with AVG on our sbs2011 server, we have installed clamav.

The product installed OK, but when it tries to update itself we get :-

ClamAV update process started at Fri May 17 09:40:16 2013
main.cvd is up to date (version: 54, sigs: 1044387, f-level: 60, builder: sven)

Trying again in 5 secs...

I have installed this on 3 servers so far and every one has the same problem.

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this?

Many thanks.

Are you using a proxy server? Check if the settings are good.

I sorted it out thanks :-

We do not use a proxy.

The default settings for the download server are

database.clamv.net

changing it to :-

db.local.clamav.net

sorted it out for me.

Thanks anyway.
