Lightbulb Local mirror for Clamav

Hi, I've running MailScanner + Clamav on mi linux box to check and remove viruses from the e-mail. On the windows clients they have clamwin, and some of they only have e-mail and not web browsing.

My question is, how can setup my linux box to get the clamav updates and update locally the win clients ?

Any help and idea will be very appreciated,

Greetings from Ecuador - South America !

Yeahh.. I've resolved the issue about the local update of the signatures for the clamwin clients.

1.- Configure freshclam.conf to download the updates every two hours
2.- Configure a virtual host ( to point to the path containing the signatures, usually /var/clamav
3.- Configure the clamwin internet updates pointing to
4.- Update the signatures

Thats all folks .. .
