    Which Antivirus option is a better option?

    I know 4PSA is more than half the price of Dr Web.

    Which one works better?
    what are the differences in options?

    what would you use?

    I mean no offense towards either, but I've found that the Open Source world is much more appropriate for my use. ClamAV with Qmail-Scanner (both from ART) do the job nicely for me.

    More information on either can be achived through the forums.

    Information on ART, his goals, and so on, is available via www.AtomicRocketTurtle.Com. He has quiet an archive of packages (yum accessed) for multiple distributions that utilize rpm.

    More information on ClamAV is available at www.ClamAV.Net.

    I'm pretty sure that his '3ES' channel should be good for RHEL3. Look at the files in this location:

    http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/art/3ES/RPMS/

    notice they have the .rhel3 in the filename...

    Make sure you follow his directions for setting up the yum.conf and then use:

    yum install clamav qmail-scanner

    Side note: 4PSA Clean Server can and will run just fine with ART's qmail-scanner package installed at the same time. So it is possible to have f-prot, clamav, SA, perl-scan all scanning mail messages with no problems.

    what would be the point of running 4PSA clean server and clamav?

    I been bouncing around the turtle's site...
    I have been looking for some directions on setting up clamav......

    seems like a lot of people on this forum like it... So I think i am going to give it a try.

    Running RHEL3 and Plesk 7.5.4

    I just threw that out there in case anyone was curious. But if nothing else, for servers that may already use 4PSA-CS (uses f-prot), you can add clamav as an additional AV scan. Protection should always be done in layers. No single scanner can always catch everything.

    Just a side note, the "glue" behind the scenes is qmail-scanner, which also works with other anti-virus products (f-prot, mcaffee, etc). When you install qmail-scanner it will automatically detect other virus scanners and configure itself to use them. If you add them after the fact, just run: qmail-scanner-reconfigure

    Open the file /etc/yum.conf and replace any repos there with:

    [atomic]
    name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - Atomic PSA-Compatible RPMS
    baseurl=http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/art/$releasever/
    baseurl=http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/art/$releasever/

    [psa-7.5]
    name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - SW-Soft PSA 7.5 RPMS
    baseurl=http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/psa-7.5/$releasever/
    baseurl=http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/psa-7.5/$releasever/

    [base]
    name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - Base OS RPMS mirror
    baseurl=http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/3rd-party/base/$releasever/

    [updates]
    name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - OS Update RPMS mirror
    baseurl=http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/3rd-party/updates/$releasever/

    Then from the command line:

    #rpm --import http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY.art.txt

    #yum install clamav spamassassin qmail-scanner

    Once they are done, run

    #/usr/bin/qmail-scanner-reconfigure

    That should about do it.

    Yes you can leave your spamassassin. But be sure to stop the spamassassin service BEFORE you do:

    #/usr/bin/qmail-scanner-reconfigure

    Once that's done, then start Spamassassin again.
