Cannot See Definition Update Server (I think)

Hi Folks,

I just installed 0.981 on an old copy of Win2003 Server.

If I'm reading this right, my definitions are up to date and/or it can't see the server. I'm a bit confused because it seems to be trying two different IPs for database.clamav.net. When I pinged it I got 168.143.19.95, when I pinged it again a few minutes later, I got 69.12.162.28. Our DNS seems to be working fine for every other domain. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Jeff

You are probably okay--Today I also seem be be having a "hiccup" when I try a manual update on my standalone PC, but it always completes afer a couple of tries. If there is a problem with one update site, the freshclam update executable tries another. If the update attempt utimately comes off okay, I wouldn't worry about it--Clam AV may have some infrastructure problem right now.

Regards,
