This issue has been solved. See solution.

Does anyone know what the URL's are for the Symantec Liveupdate server - Default. The network admin wants to add the Symantec specific urls just to get updates on the firewall.

HI ,

As I mentioned earlier all symantec products works on same liveupdate site and ports so
it is
<IdsHttpConnectionMsg2><liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com><80><HTTP>

if that fails it goes to FTP on port 21
<IdsFtpConnectionAttempt><update.symantec.com>

URLs

hosts/0/url=http://liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com:80
hosts/1/url=http://liveupdate.symantec.com:80
hosts/2/url=ftp://update.symantec.com/opt/content/onramp

http://liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com

http://liveupdate.symantec.com

ftp://update.symantec.com/opt/content/onramp

  • LiveUpdate connects via HTTP to the domains liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.comliveupdate.symantec.com, and akamai.net.
  • If a connection fails, LiveUpdate tries to connect to one of the other listed domains. The listed domains may change because of server maintenance.
  • If LiveUpdate cannot make an HTTP connection, LiveUpdate connects via FTP to update.symantec.com/opt/content/onramp
