Using Norton AntiVirus on a network
You can run Norton AntiVirus on any AppleTalk Transaction Protocol server such as AppleShare or TOPS. You can configure Norton AntiVirus to alert you or others on the network if a virus is found on a client computer running Norton AntiVirus NetWare Loadable Module (NAV NLM) or Norton AntiVirus for Windows NT (NAV NT). This appendix offers tips and suggestions for using Norton AntiVirus efficiently on a network.
Notes to the administrator
Set up Norton AntiVirus the following way in a networking environment:
Run Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect and the Norton AntiVirus application on the system administrator’s computer.
Make sure Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect is run on all workstation Macintosh computers.
Use the Scheduler command from the Norton AntiVirus Tools menu to schedule periodic scans of all network drives.
Scanning network drives
When you are scanning network drives from a workstation, the server slows down for other users. If others are creating, deleting, or moving files on a network drive while Norton AntiVirus is scanning, all files may not get scanned.
