Limit the bandwidth used for updating

To prevent Sophos AutoUpdate from using all your bandwidth when you need it for other purposes (such as downloading your email), you can limit the amount of bandwidth it uses.

  1. On the Configure menu, click Updating.
  2. Click the Primary location or Secondary location tab.
  3. Click Advanced.
  4. Select the Limit amount of bandwidth used check, and move the slider to specify the amount of bandwidth Sophos AutoUpdate uses.
    Note If you specify more bandwidth than is available, Sophos AutoUpdate uses all the bandwidth.
