    Hi

    Under Update, Advanced, Internet Connection. What is the relevance of the settings (None, LAN, Dial-up, Other) please?

    May be I am not so correct but one of out computers connects to internet only once a week or so . If its NOD32 is set to LAN then NOD32 will try to update constantly and it displays error messages "Error connect to server"

    When I set it to None , NOD32 doesn't try to update and no error messages to confuse users :D

    Hi Buscuit.

    None = No Internet connection

    LAN = Local Area Network, as in a Broadband connection.

    Dial-up = Modem dial up connection.

    Other (e.g. Portable computer) = Laptop with dual connection, as in dial up and LAN.

    Cheers :D

    Thanks Blackspear. But I want to know the relevance of each setting. So for instance what does the dial-up or "other" setting do in relation to choosing the LAN setting.

    With dial up setting NOD32 tries to update only if you are connected to internet.

    No .

    In Control Center->NOD32 System information->Scheduler/Planner you see you have set by default check for update every one hour + you can check to have update on every dial-up or VPN connection . You can make them both remain :D

    During installation this setting changes which update options are enabled by default. (what mrtwolman said)

    Also what HiTech_boy said is correct.

    Just my observances - after installation this setting seems to alter by what method NOD32 decides if a dial up connection has been made and may help determine via which interface update and ThreatSense connections are made.

    Cheers:)
