Here is where the virus definitions are loaded from http://www.symantec.com/security_response/definitions.jspThe live update can be controlled from Policies
In Symantec Endpoint Proteciton console, check for the policies>edit the policies you have for your workstation, there might be multiple policies. You need to check and edit the policies. When you edit the policy you will see the live update where you can control the update status from the server. You also can schedule the updates from Symantec server.

I mean symantec endpoint need to download from symantec before distributing workstation,  where cam I configure the server side download
Ganesh Kumar ASr Infrastructure SpecialistCommented:
There is no need to configure the server details, it will pickup automatically if there is internet on the symantec endpoint server.  

Why you want to specify the path? Are you facing any automatic update issue on the SEPM server?
