Threaded View
I am having problems with Autoupdate with Netshield, insofar as the
client machines will not perform scheduled update from locally stored
DAT file.

OK. here is the problem I have

I can download DAT file from nai ftp site and save this on server to a
shared folder accesible to all clients.

Using the console I "point" all the clients to this folder.

If I then schedule the update to either a specific time or at startup
then it fails.

However, if I launch update in immediate mode it finds the DAT file and
updates fine.
Also, a scheduled update from the ftp site to any of the clients also

Looking at the system event log (Applications) I find the message -
Error id: 4034 - The specified directory does not exist.

and the Netshield Activity log shows -

Update    NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM    Locating installation and temp directories.
Update    NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM    An unknown error occured while reading from
the remote system and the connection was dropped.

I am running s small network of one server (NT4 SP6) and 6 client
workstations (mix of win2k and XP). Netshield 4.03a with 5.1.00 Scan

Any helpful advice would be welcome.

Yes Yayya,

 all the clients have access and full permission set to this folder.

Any ideas ?
