Issue



You have firewall or security policies that restrict the URL or Web sites my servers connect to. I want to know what URLs are used by Symantec products to download rulesets, register, and perform software update (if applicable). The Symantec products:
--Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam 6.0.x
--Symantec Mail Security 5.0 for SMTP
--Symantec Mail Security 8200 Series appliance
--Symantec Mail Security 8300 Series appliance


Solution



The universal resource locator (URL) used depends on what is downloaded, the URL, and the Symantec product.
