Virus definitions not updating on Symantec Antivirus 10, XP client

Recently some laptops in our network stopped downloading virus definitions. Our firewall was configured to allow traffic from the wireless vlan to our server, however, the port on version 10 has changed to 2967. After adding the new port we still were having intermittent virus update problems. We needed to add a local rule on the laptops for port 2967. Windows firewall was preventing the inbound connections on port 2967 (meaning we could not push updates from the mmc plugin). After adding an exception to the windows firewall, we were able to update virus definititions successfully.

I am using NAV Corporate edition and I had few issues with updating definition -it tool 7 days to find out the real issue-for my notebook-I just have bypassed firewall from control panel and -firewall then- http tab and select bypass firewall. Then It was updated. Now I have recent definition - but I think virus is here- in the registry, because when I try downloading updates from other anti virus so it just say can not download updates from the sites- like I am also using malwarebytes and few more super antispyware. but only symantec corporate edition is updated and rest of the 2 are not updating from the site.

try akismet for comment spam filtering. Most of the blogging packages out there have some sort of spam filtering available.

I've been looking around for articles similar to this but never found one that actually was valuable such as this. Glad I found this place!
