Symantec AntiVirus Update will not download virus definition files?

I can't seem to get my Linux AntiVirus Live update to download virus defs from my Windows Symantec Update Server? My Windows workstations can update and download without a problem?
When I run LiveUpdate from the Linux side it errors out with "an error has occurred (code=-2,001)" Also, I'm not sure where the Linux defs are to be placed on my windows side for download from my linux workstations?
I've found a couple good articles but everything I've tried hasn't fixed my problem?
If I download the virus defs locally to each linux box I can update the virus defs without a problem, not a good option when I have several Linux boxes.

This sounds like a question you should be asking of Symantec.
