ClamAV configuration settings.


  1. First you will need to locate the the freshclam configuration file.
    cd /usr/local/atmail/av/etc
  2. You can now open the file with your preferred text editor.
    vi freshclam.conf
  3. When you have opened the file, search for Proxy. The following text should appear.
    # Proxy settings
    #HTTPProxyPort 1234
    #HTTPProxyUsername myusername
    #HTTPProxyPassword mypass
  4. Now you will need to edit the following text, changing the appropriate details. When you are finished editing the proxy settings save and quit from the file.
