Pushing files from a Linux box to a Windows Box


I've recently set up a cron job on a Linux server to download files for a Windows box. The files are Norton Anti-Virus Intelligent Updater updates. I only download the actual defintions, not everything from the page.

My question is about the interaction with my Windows machine. If anyone has ever used Norton and the Intelligent Updater, they know that several other windows appear when installing the updates. So, my goal here is to set up a Scheduled Task (which I know how to do) to push the updates down from my Linux box (obviously a SMB share) automatically with no user interaction so that it will not interrupt the user on the Windows machine but just install the updates automatically. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

I think you will need to use LiveUpdate to do it automatically.

Hi Dave,

Live Update only runs once a week. I want to run a job to pull the files down from my Linux server every day via the Intelligent Updater.
