    I was looking at Nod32 for Linux which we have bought for some of our linux boxes. It mentioned that the command line options are the same as for the DOS program, but I didn't see the options to scan inside of packed files or archives. Am I missing something or is this missing from the Linux program?

    Thanks!

    Nod32 for Linux - another question

    While I'm asking, is it possible to send just a filename to the nod32 program as an argument rather than a directory? For example:

    nod32 /tmp/test/eicar.com

    instead of:

    nod32 /tmp/test/

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    some time ago there's been a newer version of NOD32 for Linux put on our website www.nod32.com which supports scanning archives.

    Yes, it should be possible to scan only a particular file and not the whole directory.

    What version? We have "NOD32 Antivirus System for Linux 1.015 (030505)" and the help doesn't mention anything about archives or packed files.
    How? I send nod32 a file as an argument and it tries to treat it as a directory:
    # ./nod32 /home/smccracken/test/eicar.com
    ? Loading module...OK

    ? Scanning log
    ? NOD32 Version 1.455 (20030707)

    ? Command line: /home/smccracken/test/eicar.com
    date: 11.7.2003 time: 12:59:05

    ? scanning path /home/smccracken/test/eicar.com
    number of diagnosed files: 0com/
    number of viruses found: 0
    termination time: 12:59:05 total time: 0 sec (00:00:00)

    It's coming up on 2 weeks and there is no resolution to this. If NOD32 expects to gain ground in the corporate workl the customer service needs to improve!

    Hi Stephen, people has been pretty busy around here lately. I'm sure the NOD mods will answer your question soon.

    Hi cracky,

    I apologize for the delay - more info here.

    I'd like to know for what purpose do you need the NOD32 for LINUX. We have 2 versions now:

    - NOD32 for LINUX - an on-demand scanner especially for e.g. File Server, workstation

    - new NOD32 for Linux Mail Server - designed to check e-mail for malware

    Please specify your needs, so that we could help you better.

    Thanks, :)

    Thanks. I will look into the two versions, but this is what I was looking for:

    We have a proxy server running in our organization, but have many downloads blocked for virus safety. We have a plug-in that will call virus scanning engine for any download. The scanning code wants to send the filename as the argument rather than a directory. I don't see how I can get Nod32 to work here as 1) it doesn't seem to accept a filename as an argument and 2) I don't see documentation on scanning archives in the Linux version of Nod32. We don't want to open up downloading until we get this plugin working.

  10. First, let me apologize for not logging into my Zhen-Xjell account, I can't seem to get the "forgot password" function working to send me email. Paul, I'm going to call you on your cellphone after this post. I sent you email a week or so ago.

    Here is my question, I'd like to setup the linux mail server nod32 daemon to scan inbound emails. If one is intercepted and found to contain malware, can this daemon be configured to reply to the sender indicating such to them?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Thank you

    As far as I know we have licence for Linux on demand scanner (not the Linux
    mail-server version). http://www.nod32.com/download/unix/nod32linux.tgz

    I contacted Eset's support in the Czech Republic. They sent me an upgrade to v1.990. Now it scans archives (I tested only Eicar *.zip files so far) using the -z switch like this:

    agneta:/usr/local/nod32# ./nod32 -z ./virus
    NOD32 for Linux, Version 1.990, (C) 2001-2002 ESET Software
    Signatures version 1.552 (20031107) from 07-11-2003

    Command line: -z
    Scanning started on 10-11-2003, 13:53:41

    ./virus/eicar.com - Eicar test file
    ./virus/eicar_com.zip - Eicar test file
    ./virus/eicar_com.zip -> eicar.com - Eicar test file
    ./virus/eicarcom2.zip - Eicar test file
    ./virus/eicarcom2.zip -> eicar_com.zip - Eicar test file
    ./virus/eicarcom2.zip -> eicar_com.zip -> eicar.com - Eicar test file
    ./virus/wicked_scr.scr - Win32/Sobig.F worm
    ./virus/your_document.pif - Win32/Sobig.F worm

    Scanning finished at 13:53:41, total time: 0 sec (0:00:00)
    Total files: 8
    Infected files: 5
    Cleaned files: 0
    Active files: 0

    oh, i see.
    but i don't need it to scan mails. i have to use it for ftp-uploads on my server. and like netwoR i have the licence for the on-demand-scanner only.
    what possibilities are there for my situation ??

    best regards

    ps: sorry for my english ;)

    How about NOD32 for FreeBSD mail server? I use CommuniGate Pro under FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE and would like to run NOD32.
