servers IP adresses ?
« on: August 11, 2006, 03:33:11 PM »
Hi
Since few days I'm using the spyware/malware/ads-blocklist in Outpost pro. I did realize, that since then the iAVS- and Program-Update doesn't work no more. I found the reason why. The IP-addresses of the server(s) is/are within a range of blocked IP-addresses (Everyones Internet Inc.).
Question: Is or are the IP-addresses of the avast-server(s) fix for making a exclusion list in the blocklist-manager?
Thanks for answering and regards

List of update servers could be found in servers.def file in setup subdirectory under avast4 folder. There are the names, not IPs but you can check for the IPs yourself.
The problem is that this list could change (and actually is changed) quite frequently (servers are mostly added).

It is a waste of time, I have had it disabled since testing on day 1 when it was introduced as a plug-in. When active it scans hundreds of files on boot, this forces avast to also scan these actions, slowing your overall boot times.

The plug-in is effectively Lavasoft's Adaware, so if you have that already and or other anti-spyware products, this plug-in is a waste of processing effort. I would say let Outpost Pro do what it is good at the firewall and leave other plug-ins alone. That said I have the Ads, Attack Detection and DNS Cache enabled and started, the others all stopped/disabled.

I hate it when a program starts to become a suite and bloated, thankfully these plug-ins can be disabled without a problem.

Now I've had my rant, on to the problem ;D
Firstly I have no problem accessing any avast download servers, so I don't know where you got the blocked IP list from. Perhaps it might just be blocking all avast IP because the avast.setup is a blocked application, see below.

Find the Options, Application tab and find the avast.setup entry, it may be in the blocked applications (if you inadvertently blocked it after a program update), if so Edit it and put it in the trusted applications. If it is already partially allowed or trusted, delete the entry and do a manual iAVS update in avast, this will force outpost to ask permission, accept.
