    Hi,

    I have been attempting to set-up a mirror system on an XP Home network.

    I have no problems creating the mirror files.

    But I cannot get the clients to update from the mirror.

    I have read both the FAQ on this and Anders "quick walkthrough" for Win2K (included below).

    I have used exactly the set-up described by Anders (except for the server name) but get the following response on the client machines;

    "server connection failure".

    I can of course just up-date all of the clients from the web but I like to do my bit to save bandwidth.

    Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    John C

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There are two common pitfalls when updating NOD32 over a LAN.

    Here's a quick walkthrough I made earlier:


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On mirror-machine: (computer name: THESERVER)

    - Download from NOD32-server using the username and password received at purchase.

    - In the mirror setup, choose which versions to create mirrors for.

    - Enter a path to an existing directory where the mirror files should be stored. (for example: C:\Program Files\ESET\NOD32UPD)

    - Share that folder, giving read access to an account on the mirror-machine. (For example, create the account "noduser") Share the folder as "NOD32UPD".

    - No username/password should be entered in the mirror setup.
    ------

    On client machine:

    - Open NOD32 Control Center.

    - Click the "Servers..." button.

    - COMMON PITFALL 1: Add the server: file://THESERVER/NOD32UPD

    - COMMON PITFALL 2: Enter the username and password to access the updates. The username in this example should be: THESERVER\noduser
    The password should be the password of the user "noduser" on the computer with the mirrors (THESERVER)
