    Sorry, I know this has been asked many times, but for a small network w/DC
    10 clients. Best option for admin managed AV program ( we do have cable
    Internet access with a router)
    Thanks

  2. I'd look into the Trend Micro client/server suite (or
    client/server/messaging, if you also have Exchange). Have had very few
    problems with it.

    Also, just curious - is your router also a true firewall (not just a NAT
    box)? I'd recommend it...

    It's and SMC 7004BR. It does have a firewall, Is it good enough? Plus,
    thanks, I will checkout Trend Micro

  5. Probably just fine - of course, a firewall isn't a panacea - make sure
    you've hardened your server's security & keep it updated with all critical
    patches/updates.
    They have a free 30-day eval available for download. I really like Trend a
    lot. My favorite, these days.

  6. Ah - it just does NAT. I'd replace it with a device that also has a stateful
    inspection firewall built in, for more security. My current small-office
    fave is the NetGear FR114P - about $80 US.

    OK. Is it a big deal to change out the routers? Right now the server(W2K DC)
    does all DNS/DHCP. Cable ISP IP address on forwarder tabs. 10 clients, 5 xp,
    5 w98se?
    Thanks for the help

  8. Nope - but there will be a loss of internet connectivity in the meantime.
    That's good
    Presume you mean your ISP's DNS server - put in more than one just in case.
    Yep - make sure you're running WINS as you have 9x clients.
    Most welcome!
