Hi,

 

Does anyone have the update URLs to get the latest definitions for SAVLINUX?

I need the web URL and the IP addresses associated with them.  Thank you.

The IPs will likely be random at times since they are hosted

Symantec makes LiveUpdate content available on the Internet through a partnership with the Akamai server network.  Akamai is a network of tens of thousands of servers scattered worldwide for more efficient distribution of content.  Symantec recommends specifying Symantec LiveUpdate servers via DNS name (fully qualified domain name), not via one or more static IP addresses. Use of static IP addresses to access Symantec LiveUpdate content is not supported or recommended.

Hi JRS17,

"Thumbs up" to the above advice!

if you absolutely need a fixed IP for the SAVFL clients to connect to, it is possible to establish a LiveUpdate Administrator 2.x (LUA 2.x) server on your internal network.  This LUA server can download the daily definitins from Akamai and make them available internally on your network from one definite Distribution Center.

Hope this helps!

With thanks and best regards,

Mick
