    Hi all

    I am trying to help a school with their badly infected network.
    So far it's been... 'managed' by people even dumber than I am! :D

    I set up a server (Win Svr 2003) and installed NOD32 V3 before plugging it into the network.

    I put all the workstations on the domain (disconnected from the Net), mapped their drives to the server, and scanned them overnight. Tonnes of Malware removed.

    I then pushed installationsof NOD32 V3 to the workstations: RAS & RAC both installed on the server.

    My Problem is that I cant get the installations of NOD 32 to update from the server. Bandwidth is very expensive here in South Africa; so having the computers all update over the Net is not an option.

    The reason I cant get the damn things to update from the server is probably because the Update Module Settings in Eset Configuration Editor are confusing me: o_O

    Lets say that the update server's name is... Homes.
    What should the settings be in:
    Profile>Update server
    Username
    Password (are these the UN & PWD we Got from ESET or the UN & PWD of the server itself?)

    Then what are the settings in LAN?

    Thx in advance?

    update server should be: http://homes:2221
    you can leave username and pwd under here empty

    did you enable mirror in console? port 2221 is default port for updates via http protocol

    :)

    What is the path to the mirror folder by default?
    Is it:
    C:\...\ESET\ESET Remote Administrator\Server\updfiles
    ?
