Antivirus was enabled. I disabled it and tried to download the file. It worked.
I've now re-enabled AV and added the server ip to the exclusion list.

The file is a sophos binaries update for our AV!

To my knowledge, sonicwall antivirus enforcement only works on kaspersky and now Mcafee. If you are using any other antivirus solutions on client, its better to disable the sonicwalls antivirus protection

What is the firmware version, is that 5.9
