What does the avast Webproxy filter?
« on: April 24, 2010, 02:18:27 PM »

I am playing around with Proximetron and avast Server 4.8 on my Gateway. Luckily I discovered, how to implement avasts Webproxy on Port 12080 for Proymetron as External Proxy Server.

When I go to and start downloading the file comes through the system unchecked and my Browser wants to save it on my Client Workstation.

Are downloaded files not filtered by avast? In Proxymetrons Log I see that avast was correctly used:
=============== snip =============
Using Proxy -
Accept: image/gif, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, application/x-ms-application, application/, application/xaml+xml, application/x-ms-xbap, application/x-shockwave-flash, */*
Accept-Language: de
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; Trident/4.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729)
Content-Filter-Helper: E4E5F6D652BC5A6F40D6FB2C
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
If-Modified-Since: Fri, 04 Jul 2008 10:38:03 GMT
Connection: keep-alive

==================== snap =============

But no Result of virus scanning.
In my avast settings local connections are not ignored.

Please tell me how to use it right.

I found a solution here:

======================= snip =============
Anyway!! don't you guys use spycar test files inspite of eicar? Avast detects it as well.
========================== snap ==============

This works for me for the first moment, but I want to see webproxy filtering also the

My second question is How can I activate script blocking for Proxymetron?
