Need Antivirus for NON GUI RH9 system with signature updates

I need an antivius software for RH9 Linux without GUI (no X no KDE no Gnome = Clarkconnect) that atomatically uses signature updates through the internet.
-> So it has to be used though a SSH console.

I searched a bit in this forum an found this:

Bitdefender Linux Edition

Panda Linux Antivirus

Which software is the best for me or is there any other good software ?

ClamAV and F-Prot are also used by our members. In fact, from my (non-scientific ) evidence, they seem to be the most recommended.

Now I have Bitdefender Linux installed because I was satisfied with the Windows version.
It is not very user friendly.

Which is the most easy to use Scanner : F-Prot, ClamAV, Panda or Bitdefender ?
