Windows Server 2003 and free anti-virus?

Hi

Can someone please point out a free anti-virus that supports Windows Server 2003 like AVG?

Thanks

probably not going to happen. Antivirus for servers is a huge market!

Same problem, I'm currently running Win2k3 r2 in a virtual machine - but free firewalls and AV software don't seem to exist (and it's big $$$s for server versions).

it is because they are only free for personal use, and running on Server2003 is definitely not personal use.

Hi all,

No free versions run with 32/64 bit server operating systems unless they are time limited free pro versions which give up the ghost after 30 days. But i have found one that will work on any server version 32 or 64 bit.
its called "NOD32".
Hope this helps.


Regards

Tamco

Hmm, found this on NOD32's download page:

"NOD32 for Windows NT/2000/2003/XP/XP64 - v.2.7 8.19 nentenst.exe Download"

The only 2003 I know of is Win2k3 server.
