Enhancement request: Allow old virus defs by days again

The more recent firmware versions changed the setting that used to allow us to set how old anti-virus definitions could be and still allow access through the host checker. We used to use 15 days. Later versions were changed to this:

"Virus Definition files should not be older than nnn Updates. Note: The maximum update value entry should be in the range of 1-10"

That's a problem. Symantec Endpoint Protection v11 puts out a minimum of three updates a day. We've had to set this to 10 updates but it's still causing host checker failures if someone turns on their laptop after it's been off for four days.

See http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response/definitions.jsp

Thanks for listening.

Hey Ray - nice suggestion - FYI - my understanding is that enchancement requests are most effective if submitted through your Juniper sales team. I would contact the Juniper SE that is assigned to your account and ask him to submit this. Gets the most attention that way.

Hi Kevin,

I have no clue who that is and don't know how I would find out. They must not think we have a lot of money to spend. :-)

Ask your reseller partner - they should be able to do it for you.....
