Cisco Access-List and Avast Update
« on: April 22, 2010, 04:28:56 PM »
Hi all,

 I have a big problem with avast iAVS upgrade.
Into my LAN i use access-list to deny http traffic for all users.

Into servers.def there are lot of server and i can't
implement one access-list with 350 servers.

I can create a new server.def with 5 or 6 IP server ... ???
Or there is another solution ????

Thanks .

Alessandro

P.S. Into Cisco ACL i can't use domain name ( *.avast.com )

Well, I don't know what help are you exactly expecting here... Cisco ACLs don't allow dynamic DNS hostnames, I'm not sure about the ACL limits itself now. You'd be better off to set up a proxy on some port with authentication, point your Avast clients to that proxy in settings and allow unlimited HTTP access from that proxy to web (and thus Avast update servers) on Cisco.

It's certainly not possible to create your own servers.def file.

If you used avast! managed clients with ADNM, it's possible to create local mirror, with the clients updating from that mirror.
