This document describes how to set up an internal LiveUpdate server for Symantec Client Security 3.0 for Nokia Communicator.


Solution



To set up an internal LiveUpdate server for Symantec Client Security for Nokia Communicator, the administrator must download all of the necessary LiveUpdate files from the Symantec LiveUpdate server and place them on an internal server.

For each product update, there are two files that need to be downloaded (for a maximum of six files). The first is a Livetri.zip file, and the second is the corresponding package.

Constructing the name of the Livetri.zip file
Look for the following files on the Symantec LiveUpdate server:

  • For Symantec AntiVirus
    antivirus$5fsymbians80___livetri.zip
  • For LiveUpdate
    wlu$5fsymbians80___livetri.zip
  • For virus definitions
    virusdefs$5fsymbians80___livetri.zip


Where is the targeted version number (what is currently installed on device), and is the language of the product. The value for should be one of the following:

  • ChineseSimplified
  • Chinese
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • English
  • French
  • Finnish
  • German
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish

Examples of file names
antivirus$5fsymbians80_1.0_english_livetri.zip
virusdefs$5fsymbians80_3.0_english_livetri.zip
wlu$5fsymbians80_3.0_english_livetri.zip

Examples of file names and locations
HTTP://liveupdate.symantec.com/antivirus$5fsymbians80_3.0_english_livetri.zip
HTTP://liveupdate.symantec.com/virusdefs$5fsymbians80_1.0_english_livetri.zip
HTTP://liveupdate.symantec.com/wlu$5fsymbians80_3.0_english_livetri.zip

If the files do not exist on the server, then an update is not available (the product is up to date).


Downloading the packages
If one of the Livetri.zip files was not available on the server, you do not need to look for its corresponding package (as no update is available).

Package file formats
Look for the following package files on the Symantec LiveUpdate server:
  • For Symantec AntiVirus
    antivirus_symbians80_.zip
  • For LiveUpdate
    wlu_symbians80_.zip
  • For virus definitions
    virusdefs_symbians80._.zip

Where is the targeted version number (without the decimal point).

Examples of file formats
antivirus_symbians80_30.zip
virusdefs_symbians80._30.zip
wlu_symbians80_30.zip

Examples of file names and locations
HTTP://liveupdate.symantec.com/antivirus_symbians80_30.zip
HTTP://liveupdate.symantec.com/virusdefs_symbians80_10.zip
HTTP://liveupdate.symantec.com/wlu_symbians80_30.zip


Setting up the files on an internal server
Follow the steps below to place the downloaded files in the correct location on your internal LiveUpdate server.

To place the files on the internal LiveUpdate Server
  1. Once all of these files are downloaded, copy them to the internal server.
  2. Create a text file named MyServers.txt.
    Use a text editor, such as Notepad.exe.
  3. In the MyServers.txt file, place the IP address of your internal server in the following format:

    111.222.333.444

  4. Save the file as a standard text file in the \Communicator\System\Apps\symlu folder.

When LiveUpdate Wireless runs, it should redirect to the URL that is indicated in MyServers.txt instead of going to the Symantec LiveUpdate server.
