Thread: DAT file updates for virus scanning doesn't work

  1. DAT file updates for virus scanning doesn't work

    BENT is trying to get updates from ftp.nsmg.seagatesoftware.com which
    apparently doesn't exist anymore. I dug into the registry and tried
    changing the site to ftp.nai.com but it says it can't find the files. I
    assume the filename is hardcoded somewhere. Is there a Veritas site I
    can get these updates from or a way to get them from NAI? I know how to
    manually update the virus definitions; I want this to be automatic.
