Dear Friends,
I work (with my PC) within a Lan with proxy authentication.
I always get within the report the following "warning":
ClamAV update process started at Mon Jun 09 12:26:10 2008
WARNING: Invalid DNS reply. Falling back to HTTP mode.
Connecting via
Reading CVD header (main.cvd): OK (IMS)
main.cvd is up to date (version: 46, sigs: 231834, f-level: 26, builder: sven)
Connecting via
Reading CVD header (daily.cvd): OK
LibClamAV Error: DNS Resolver: Can't query
daily.cld is up to date (version: 7407, sigs: 78955, f-level: 26, builder: ccordes)

Is there anyone who can explain to me the meaning of this warning (simple words please Very Happy ) Question
Thanks a lot for your help !!! Paolo

your lan is not able to use dns so the warning, you may have configured to block dns query but it's not really a problem
freshclam only supports basic authentication with the proxy, you may have configured ntlm auth
