avastupdate problem
« on: December 28, 2005, 06:07:53 PM »
Hi everybody,

I have problem to download VPS file
in the avastvpsupdate.conf file I have the following URL:
VpsLocation=http://files.avast.com/files/latest/
This URL doesn't work, I tested it manually. What's the good URL please?

DavidR, we're talking avast for Linux here... ;)
latifa, this is indeed a correct URL - but it's a folder URL, not the file itself. The file is called 400.vps
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

Hello everybody,

this is the configuration in my avastvpsupdate.conf :
We have a serv ::)er proxy 192.168.1.1 at the port 80.

# Enable/disable VPS file updating
# Set 0 to disable this
Update=1

# Specify location, where a new VPS file is stored.
# The URL must be absolute and terminated by "/" delimiter.
# NOTE: only HTTP protocol is supported now!
VpsLocation=http://files.avast.com/files/latest/

# Specify PROXY server settings
# Enable/disable proxy connection
# 0 - don't use proxy
# 2 - use HTTP proxy
NetAcc=2

# proxy address
NetIP=192.168.1.1

# proxy port
NetPort=80

# proxy login username
NetUser=

# proxy login password
NetPwd=

I also checked  /usr/bin/avastvpsupdat.pl file and I set valuses as follows:

my $updateconfig   = {
  -update => "1",
  -vpslocation  => "http://files.avast.com/files/latest/",
  -netacc => "2",
  -netip => "192.168.1.1",
  -netport => "80",
  -netuser => "",
  -netpwd => "",
};

then I trayed to update manually :
[root@RedHat root]# /etc/cron.daily/avastvpsupdate.pl
error: cannot download the latest VPS MD5 file

what do you think can be the problem ?
