oh No, I want to use Clam on a home computer.

I have Klamav installed on SUSE linux 9.1, do you know how to update it using Klamav. Do I have to change anything so that the clam update can let me access their update.

Whenever I try to update it tells me that my connection was refused, I dont know why?
