avast online scanner not working
« on: October 23, 2004, 12:27:54 PM »
I always receive these errors:

Warning: fsockopen(): php_hostconnect: connect failed in /var/www/onlinescan/scanner.php on line 21

Warning: fsockopen(): unable to connect to localhost:5036 in /var/www/onlinescan/scanner.php on line 21
Error: Connection refused (111)

any solution?

Me too  :'(

I suppose you're following the rules like me:
Each time you may check only one file with size not exceeding 512kB.

Well the online scanner has not been officially launched yet.
Where did you get link to it? From RejZoR's page?

It was (now removed) on the drop down menu of Virus.

It's also still on the Menu Items list on the Virus folder under the Subscription Service Heading.

I didn't see it on REjZors site, I found it whilst browsing the Virus folder.

so, it's finally available through the virus menu (beta version) ::)
it only scans file not exceeding 512 kb  ???
what file types does it scan? Are they the same as avast does?  ::)

The only problem is it's file size restriction. :'(
