Anti Virus for Terminal Server?
We are having a TS/Citrix box installed and am wondering what security software to use. We currently use NOD32 on our servers and clients and i'm wondering if it's suitable for TS as i've read that some AV apps don't suite TS very well.
What are you all using?
Also what other products do you use to help secure your TS boxes from the usual spyware/virus issues?

I just use our usual AV on the terminal servers and it works fine. As long as your users are sufficiently locked down then I suspect the risk of exposure from viruses, spyware and the like should be minimal.

If this list is anything to go by you should be fine with Nod Terminal Server and Citrix Compatible Anti-Virus Software
According to the Nod manuals, there seems to be TS options, so I would assume that there is TS support.

Yeh i'd seen that there is TS support, i was just fishing for horror stories but it all looks good.

I just installed our normal AV software (Sophos) and configured it the same as our desktop machines. No problems as far as I can tell.

Generally speaking any AV software should be fine, because all AV software install Windows services when initially installed. The updating and scheduled scanning of any AV product is also controlled by its services.
