Set a source for updates

If you want Sophos AutoUpdate to update automatically, you must specify where it downloads updates from.

  1. On the Configure menu, click Updating.
  2. Click the Primary location tab.
  3. In the Address list, enter the UNC path or web address of the update server.

    To download updates directly from Sophos via the internet, select Sophos in the Address list.

  4. In the User name box, type the user name for the account that will be used to access the update server.
    If the user name needs to be qualified to indicate the domain, use the form domain\username.
  5. In the Password box, type the password for the account that will be used to access the update server.
