Configuring the DAT update to go through firewall
Solution ID : nai586 Last Modified : 22SEP2003

Goal and/or Problem Description
Configuring the DAT update to go through firewall
AutoUpdate task fails
Firewall is in place


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

------

Problem Environment
McAfee NetShield 4.5 for NetWare
McAfee NetShield 4.1.1 for NetWare
McAfee NetShield 4.1 for NetWare
Novell NetWare


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

------

Changes affecting this problem
Change information is not available for this solution

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

------

Cause of this problem
We can't FTP through a secure firewall because of the dynamic nature
of
FTP. It does not use the same port each time it connects.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solution 1:
This scenario cannot work if your network is protected by an "active"

firewall.
This information can be found on page 136 of the McAfee NetShield for

NetWare Administrator's Guide

Is this really tru or can I configure Netshield to get the updates
thru
BM3.6?

HELP

PS. Have tried a lot with the help of Craig Johnssons book on BM and Packet filtering but with no luck so far
