Hi

I have installed clamwin on two Pcs and for about two weeks everything was fine
the program would update itself and also carry out a full scan at the predefined time every day

However I noticed from the update logs that the program was not able to contact the updateserver anymore

here is some of the output

ClamAV update process started at Sat Apr 04 16:52:11 2009
WARNING: Can't get information about database.clamav.net: Unknown error

Then I realised I could download the daily update file myself from here

database.clamav.net/daily.cvd

This also worked for a few days but now all I get is this from my browser



Address Not Found

Firefox can't find the server at database.clamav.net.


so I searched around looking for a solution but no luck whatsoever

I decided to relucantly remove clamwin but then I found out about proxy.org
and decided to try getting the update file through here and guess what.....

I GOT the update file so can someone please explain whats wrong with my pcs I scan them every day and I have checked and recheked the settings.


TIA

I think you got a dns problem, are you able to go to others sites, www.clamav.net www.clamwin.com?
