Hello,

Just to let you know, from the UK Clamwin daily update keeps failing using the default download location database.clamav.net.
Have changed the download location to db.uk.clamav.net and it now works. Perhaps finding the correct mirror should be one of the questions in the installation routine, I have a lot of non-computer literate users who will have been stumped by this problem.

The error that the update log shows is as follows:

ClamAV update process started at Tue Mar 20 13:17:41 2007
main.cvd is up to date (version: 42, sigs: 83951, f-level: 10, builder: tkojm)

Update failed. Your network may be down or none of the mirrors listed in freshclam.conf is working. Check http://www.clamav.net/support/mirror-problem for possible reasons.

database ip is geo-localized, your nearest mirror may be unsynched with the virus sigs, you may decide to report clamav team about it
