Question

How do I set up Norton AntiVirus to work with GMS:
What do I enter for the Program Location?
What do I enter for the log file location?

There is a NAVNT process running in the background…

Answer

If you are using Nav NT version 5, you can simply select from the drop-down menu. If a later version, you can use the Custom option, filling out the full path to the executable file and the log file. The log file must have a fixed name, i.e. it can not change names from day to day.

However you should not have the anti-virus software running as a background process as well; this can lead to conflicts if the background process alters a file that GMS is also using. This will also interfere with VSM’s ability to read the log file, which it needs to do to determine the result of the virus scan.

NOTE: The use of Norton AntiVirus products is not supported by Gordano. You will need to contact the Anti-virus product manufacturer for the correct settings.

NOTE: Due to reliability and performance issues, VSM has been replaced by VPP which includes continous signature file upadtes and cleaning options.
