Antivirus for Netware ?

Hello people
We´re using McAfee Antivirus for our NW65 servers today but McAfee will soon
stop supporting NW. Can anyone recommend a good antivirus for NW which will
be supported for a good while longer ? I checked F-secure but they don´t
seem to support NW...

Dan,

I've been running Sophos for years on Windows and NetWare. I've been
real happy with it. Check this on the UNIX, NetWare, and other
section:
http://www.sophos.com/support/lifecycle/sophos-anti-virus.html
It states "No plans to retire" for NetWare 6.5 and NetWare OES 1/2.

Regards,
Ken Etter

Novell....it does a server good!

Hi,

I'am very happy (no abends or other problems) with the Kaspersky 5.7.3. You can manage it with C1, still supporting Netware.

Re: Antivirus for Netware ?

..I called McAfee and confirmed that Netshild is EOl by Dec

Version Release Date EOL
4.6.3 14-Jun-05 31-Dec-09
All currently supported versions will reach end of life on December 31,
2009


I asked them how long the DAT files will be available after that, and
they said for a while (nothing firm). However, they the tech also said
that they would have a replacement, but didn't know when . . . So . . .
not sure if they will still support some sort of Anti-Virus software
for Netware or not....

I know that I'm late to the game on this, but we just found out that not only is our Netshield end of life but McAfee is going to stop releasing the required V1 data on 3/31.

Can anyone make a recommendation on the least expensive antivirus for Netware that will get the job done until we can move all the file servers to OES Linux? A free trial would be wonderful as well 🙂

thanks for your help

Novell has a new enhancement request system,
or what is now known as the requirement portal.

We use and like Sophos. Abandoned Symantec several years ago and never looked back.
