    i am basically new to nod32, and i have been doing the installation for clients by going through the manual. i always use the UNC path whenever a mirror update is concerned and so far i never had any problems. i have heard about the the other option which is the http method.
    can some one please elaborate on this and how it can be done? will it work on a simple workgroup?
    thanks in advance

    Basically, the machine that is running the mirror has an option to provide the files via HTTP, using port 8081. You do not need to install anything special on the Mirror computer to set this up. No web server software or anything like that. It is all handled by the NOD32 Mirror software. Just use the following settings on the Mirror setup:

    Enable HTTP server: Yes
    HTTP server port: 8081

    Once this is set up, all you have to do is set the clients' Update server to http://mirror.ip.address:8081 , and you should be set.

    As another brand new user I have to ask as I have been wondering. Is the "Enable HTTP Server:Yes" switch the one under Mirror on the install package screen?

    Thanks

    Yes....
    Expand "Update"...click on "Mirror"...put checkmark in "Enable access to files via HTTP Protocol".

    By default port is 8081. For the users out there running Small Business Server, or Sharepoint (which SBS has), on the same box as their NOD admin server...you'll want to change this port...I use 8088 on those boxes. To change the port..click the Advanced button..you'll see it down on the bottom by "Port Used for providing files via HTTP".

    Now...using your RAC config editor, or if you're setting up clients manually...you simply plug in server name:port, or server IP:port. I use the servers IP....more direct, no DNS request needed (I like a lean mean network).

    Exampe http://192.168.3.11:8088

    And...best of all, no authentication required...no username or password when doing HTTP. (by default)
