Activate Gateway AntiVirus from Proxy Definitions

Gateway AV can scan traffic that matches rules in several categories for each proxy. For example, for the SMTP and POP3 proxies, Gateway AV can scan traffic that matches rules in the Content Types and File Names categories.

From Policy Manager, you can activate Gateway AntiVirus while you edit a proxy definition.

  1. Add an SMTP, POP3, HTTP, FTP, or TCP-UDP proxy you want to use with Gateway AntiVirus.
    For information on how to add policies, see Add a Proxy Policy to Your Configuration.
  2. Double-click the policy.
    The Edit Policy Properties dialog appears.
  3. Select the Policy tab.
  4. Click adjacent to the Proxy action drop-down list.
  5. From the Categories list on the left side of the Proxy Action Configuration dialog box, select one of these categories.
