Take Home Laptops (& Streaming Updates)
« on: May 20, 2014, 08:14:43 PM »
We have take home laptops for staff and they will be off the schools network for the summer (about 9 weeks).  Will they continue to update directly from Avast since the server we have is internal only and does not have a public facing side on the Internet? 

Also, my clients have stream updates disabled.  Is that the result of an incorrect setting during deployment?

By default all machines will seek updates from the console, but If they can't communicate with the console, they'll get their updates over the WAN, though you'll want to enable streaming updates.
In regards to streaming updates, you need to make sure that "enable streaming updates" is selected. It is by default.

The two fields you're going to want to look at in the console are the updates and cloud services fields, under edit group settings.
