  • Updated list of supported operating systems;

  • Fixed a number of errors in the product;


Product installation and upgrade

# rpm -i <package>.rpm

  • Linux/Debian (32 bit):

# dpkg -i <package>.deb

  • Linux/Debian (64 bit):

# dpkg -i --force-architecture <package>.deb

Known problems and solutions:

  • Squid 3.1

Squid does not automatically restart after completing the post-installation configuration (ref. http://bugs.squid-cache.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2586). Squid has to be restarted manually. 

Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Proxy Server
is not guaranteed to function correctly if SELinux mode is on in your OS;

In case of installing Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux (FreeBSD) workstations (servers) after Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Proxy Server has been installed, you should restart or reload kav4proxy. If kavmonitor has been restarted (restart) while these two applications were functioning simultaneously, you should restart or reload kav4proxy.

  • Mandriva Linux

    1. If SECURE_LEVEL > 1 in /etc/sysconfig/msec, it is necessary to modify the configuration file of the product  (/etc/opt/kaspersky/kav4proxy.conf):

    Find the section [updater.options] and replace:

PostUpdateCmd=/etc/init.d/kav4proxy reload_avbase


PostUpdateCmd=sh /etc/init.d/kav4proxy reload_avbase

2. If SECURE_LEVEL=5 in /etc/sysconfig/msec, antivirus database is not automatically reloaded after updating antivirus database.  In order to correct it you should execute the following command with root privileges each time antivirus database has been updated:

/etc/init.d/kav4proxy reload_avbase

  • Fedora 12 

IIf Ipv6 protocol is disabled in the system, you should recompile Squid 3.1 with option –disable-ipv6. This will ensure normal functioning of Squid with Kaspersky Anti-Virus.
