Anti-Virus Software

By sir_tuc ·
Please don't laugh. In a small NT 4 network (>15 client computers, 1 iMac, 1 PDC, 1 BDC, 1 stand alone server which are connected through a NAT'd router to a SDSL line) what would be a good candidate for an anti-virus software? Also, (and this is the part I am asking you not to laugh) since only the clients are accessing the internet why should we be concerned with server anti-virus software?

I personally like Computer Associates
Inoculit Personal edition ( it's free ), and virus signatures are easy to upgrade.

As for the server(s), even though they do not access the internet ( per se ), any computer which logson has the potential to infect the server with a virus, worm, or trojan, especially if you are sharing files like microsoft word templates, or if your clients are using outlook.

Any Personal Computer whether standalone or networked is a candidate for a virus.

You should be concerned about server anti-virus software because lets say you or an authorised person wants to install a network version of a software on the serverby not having an antivirus software installed the chances of the server being infected with a virus will be greater.
