Sophos server not updating

27-Nov-2015 05:44

Three years ago Sophos acquired the German firewall company Astaro, located in Karlsruhe - which was the visionary in Gartners magic quadrants in 2009/2010. Although it is free, you need to register later and get a user license!

When booting the CD you are warned that it will wipe your disc.

Check that this computer is connected to the network and that Sophos Auto Update is configured to update from the correct location with the correct credentials and proxy details.

The server is able to browse to and access anything in the share if you open it by Windows Explorer. If we copy the update files to the server itself and tell it to update from the folder they are in, it updates without a problem.

We have Sophos Enterprise for our Antivirus solution.

It returns an error saying that it could not contact the server. Error 1: Could not add a connection to server \servername\Sophos Update; user servername\Sophos Update Mgr; Windows error 487 Error 2: Could not connect to the server.In your scenario the addresses might differ, but you should use 3 interfaces to have a dedicated demilitatized zone.
