The GFI WebMonitor virus scanners only check files that pass through the Web Proxy and will NOT check files that pass through the Firewall Client or SecureNat Client. So, for example, if any of your users use IE as a FTP client and double clicks (Web Proxy) on an infected file, it will be caught by the virus scanning engines. If ,on the other hand, the user right clicks on the file of interest and chooses 'copy to folder' from the drop down menu (Firewall Client), the file will NOT be scanned for viruses.

Hi BG,

Yep, this is a problem with a lot of the Web proxy based AV scanners. Not sure why the third parties are not creating true application filters, instead of plug ins for the Web proxy piece.

WM3 will also not report on FTP traffic.

It however likes to report on all localhost traffic like connectivity verifiers and WPAD requests. I cannot believe that they overlooked adding exclusions for those.
