Configure the Gateway AntiVirus Service

You can configure Gateway AV to work with the WatchGuard SMTP, POP3, HTTP, FTP, and TCP-UDP proxies.

Before You Begin

Before you enable the Gateway AntiVirus Service, you must:

  1. Get a Gateway AV feature key. Contact your WatchGuard reseller or go to the WatchGuard LiveSecurity website at:
  2. Manually Add or Remove a Feature Key.

Before you can configure the Gateway AntiVirus service for a proxy policy, you must configure the policy to use a user-defined proxy action. To create a user-defined proxy action, you can clone the default (predefined) proxy action, and then apply that proxy action to the proxy policy.

To find the proxy action your policy uses:

  1. Select Firewall > Firewall Policies.
  2. Select the proxy policy, and from the Action menu, select Edit Policy.
    The Policy Configuration page appears.
  3. Select the Proxy Action tab.
    The Proxy Action for the policy appears at the top.
  4. Verify whether the proxy action is a predefined or user-defined proxy action.
    For more information about proxy actions, see About Proxy Actions.

If the proxy policy uses a predefined proxy action, you must clone the proxy action before you can enable subscription services for the proxy policy. You can clone the proxy action in the Proxy Action tab when you edit the proxy policy.

  1. From the Proxy Action drop-down list, select Clone the current proxy action.
  2. Type a new name for the cloned proxy action, or use the default name.
  3. Edit the proxy action.
    For more information, see About Proxy Actions.
  4. Click Save.
