This is using Gfi Managed antivirus on a group of desktops. These desktops do not have access to Internet, except I am planning to allow them have access to selective URLs, especially for Gfi managed antivirus to get the updated definitions. Which URL I have to explicitly allow?

thanks in advance.

Hi DrAtomic,

I've put exception on the 2 gfi updating URLs that you mentioned. Please give me a day or 2 to see whether the definition will be updated or not.
