Publish security software on a web server

You might want to publish Sophos security software on a web server for computers to access via HTTP.

To publish security software on a web server:

  1. To find out the path of the shared folder to which the security software has been downloaded, known as the bootstrap location:
    1. In Enterprise Console, on the View menu, click Bootstrap Locations.
      In the Bootstrap Locations dialog box, the Location column displays the bootstrap location for each platform.
    2. Make a note of the path up to but not including the CIDs folder. For example:
      \\server name\SophosUpdate
  2. Make the bootstrap location, including subfolders, available on the web server. For instructions, see Sophos knowledgebase article 38238.
