Hi everybody, I have a rule which allows access to the internet to all my users, but also in that same rule in the extension option I block the download of many extensions like .exe and many others. My antivirus uses the .exe to update the virus definitions and I have to remove the rule everytime I want the antivirus to update. Is there a way to allow only my antivirus to download this .exe extension?
Hi Ian and thanks for your quick reply, The AV I'm using is Microsoft Security Essentials and there's no specific address to communicate with the servers to update the antivirus definition file. What should I do in this case?
Hi again Ian, Each antivirus is installed individually on each machine and when the antivirus updates it doesn't show up the address from where it takes the definition file. I don't know what to do exactly. I want to use this antivirus because is working pretty well and is free.
Did you find an answer. We are trying to figure out how to allow some Vista Home appliances we have that run security essentials to get their updates without full internet access. But, every time we tell it to check for updates, it fails. . .
I can't find a list of update servers anywhere and the one server we find in the logs has been permitted already. . .
