    Re: Sophos to force users to the latest version

    My main servers do a daily scan at night. My terminal servers do a daily scan at night and one during lunchtime. My clients use on-access scanning so any files brought in on removable media should get scanned as they are accessed.

    This isn't a perfect setup but it does overcome the high memory usage slightly on the terminal servers - although memory usage is still too high IMHO. Obviously files downloaded from the Internet don't get scanned but I have blocked executable files using ISA to try to overcome this slightly.

    Re: Sophos to force users to the latest version

    Oh dear, I feel a faint spell coming on

    I am a peripatetic technician and one of my schools runs Sophos (installed by NS Optimum, but that’s another thread). Logons are very slow now, I thought that was the Ethernet switch problem (installed by NS Optimum, could be another thread). But now it seems it could be Sophos.

    Hertfordshire pays for McAfee so I could find how to take Sophos off and install McAfee, but there seems to be problems there too.

    I’m paid for 3 hours a week at this school, I’ve got 25 computers and a 2 servers to do, which way do I jump, McAfee or SophosV5, what do I do to get 5 minutes to fix the printer?

    Re: Sophos to force users to the latest version

    I would probably jump back to V5 Sophos, its really simple as you can re-deploy it over the V6 install (how nice of Sophos to build this feature into it ) Just get hold of a copy of the Enterprise Solutions pack V1.0 like I did, uninstall and remove every single trace of it from your servers, so thats enterprise console, em library and the actual client, remove all files from program files, remove all registry keys for it and then intall it, set it up again for updates from Sophos etc, set the policys up and away you go, deploy it to clients from there and you should be good to go. V6 will be gone fairly easily.

    It is , honest! I think I made it sound just over complex there stuffing it all together in one line, but it is fine, done it myself twice and I can do it with my eyes closed now, honest!

    Re: Sophos to force users to the latest version

    @tosca925, good point my friend, I suspect I may need to dig it out off my memory stick and host it really as its not on the Sophos site anymore. I will find it, upload it and post a link for anyone to download it, probably best as an evening download as it is just over 100MB from memory.

    Edit- Uploading now to my webspace so will post a link when its up there and completed and ready for download.
