No, sory. That's not possible at the moment. It wouldn't probably be worth is anyway -- I'd say using on ADNM on less than 10 machines would be an overkill...

Tough VLK is right about the overkill portion, what about the people who want to have Network Virus Protection on there home networks.  I am in the process of doing some testing for just that purpose.

Hey, you never know...it could be a market worth exploring.

BTW, G5 Mac's are quite impressive....tested one out at the local computer store and I was blown away!

When you can get a DVD and a Virus scan happen' at the same time....without a glitch in the video...that is impressive!

I would just like to remind that the Home edition is meant for home and non-commercial usage only. Even though it's possible, I think it's not very likely that an ordinary user will have a big network at home, just for his/her pleasure :)

That is sooooo true....and yet I only have 4 computers on the network...so, as you said it is for home and not commerical use....besides.  I don't plan on going into business anytime soon :)

Do you think there will be an antivirus scan program specially for home networks?
