If ordinary virus scan mode (non-firewall mode) is used, be sure to
disable all firewall capabilities after you install the anti-virus
To avoid any
potential incompatibility, it is strongly recommended that you turn
off all real-time monitoring/scanning capabilities provided by the
anti-virus software you installed, including memory scan, mail scan,
file scan etc.
In order to
reduce the system resource usage to the minimum, it is recommended
that you disable all the service processes run by your anti-virus
program. If your anti-virus program provides auto-update feature,
however, you may leave it on if you need to.
Virus firewall mode
You may also use virus firewall to assist the server
functionality. Currently almost all major firewall engines are supported,
e.g., Norton AntiVirus Corporate, Panda, McAfee, InoculateIT, AVP,
AVG, Sophos Anti-Virus.
Note: When using virus firewall, you need to configure it for auto-cleaning
and turn off virus warning notification, but the virus pattern auto-update
may be left on.
