Hello everyone,

I just installed Kerio Connect 8.2.2 on a Windows 2008 R2 Server Machine. This machine is located in my DMZ and has only the necessary ports open (25, 443, 465, 587, 993).
And from the Intranet is also the necessary ports open.

The Kerio Connect Server has the sophos AV engine to scan all incoming mails. This is a good idea.
But what do you think about an AV client for the whole Windows 2008 R2 Server? Is this good or does it may crash the whole system? Sad

Maybe you can tell me your experience in this case.

Thanks,
mp3tobi

You should not allow 3rd party AV scanners touch the mailstore folder. BAD stuff will happen.

Instead you could invest in a 3rd party AV/Spam filtering service. Those are usually a better investment.

Ok, thanks for the reply.
But what do you think with a 3rd party AV/Spam filtering service?

Should I install an 3rd party AV scanner on the machine and left out the mailstore folder? So it can scan the whole system but not the mailstore folder.

Only if there are other things on that server (file/print, etc), or if it is directly connected to the internet without a firewall in the middle (Gasp!)

I won't let crackers use my server for DDos, Spam or other bad services. And I hope the Kerio team will fix security issues very quickly.
So the server is behind my firewall in the DMZ and has only the following ports from the internets open:

25, 465, 587, 443, 993

The other services like ldap, netbios is also disabled on this server by the windows firewall.

The file/print service is on another hardware server located. Smile

So thanks for your help.
