Mine shows streaming updates enabled but connection not established.  What does that mean and how do I fix it?

It's the streaming servers, so there's nothing you can do.  I think it was VlK that said work on those servers would be finished something this Thursday.  For now, in a bit of a reversal, I've been receiving streaming updates (currently 44).

@Gopher John

Thanks for your reply.

Now it's showing connection established.  How can I find out whether or not I've received any streaming updates?

You have to look in avast folder. There is folder called defs and in there is last VPS folder and folder named as 130220-0 stream. If there is not a such folder, then you didn't receive any. It shows itself after at least one stream update is downloaded.


Also, I've received now some stream updates but connection now is not established.

Dynaheir is correct.  It is the Defs folder in the Avast install folder.  For Win7 64 bit, it is C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\defs where the transient folders containing the VPS and streaming updates are.

I finally found the folder and it shows I've received 51 streaming updates today.

Should be OK now, from the beta3 topic.

I've got a heads up from our operations team that all the system upgrades should now be done.

So, how's it looking on your side folks?

Thanks

Streaming update fail for last two days. Again, and again, and again with this problem. I mean it was o.k. for a little over a week, but I would have thought there would be a higher standard than that.

Hello, anybody at Avast listening?

Streaming update 13030400_stream has 18 updates in it so far today, so this looks like a back-end server issue.
