NOTE: CTS Staff typically configure/preconfigure this software on College owned computers. These instructions are provided for CTS Staff to reference for new installations or re-installations.
Install Sophos from the stand-alone installer located on CTS Tools.
Once installed, open the Sophos preferences either from under the Apple menu -> System Preferences or the the Sophos icon in the menubar.
Under the On-Access Scanning icon, under Options, change each of the following:
Scan - uncheck Inside archives and compressed files and check Files on network volumes
When a threat is found: Clean up infected files
If cleanup fails: Delete infected files [note: at this point the file itself is the virus/malware and is safe to delete, no cause for concern.]
Under the AutoUpdate icon, leave the two checkboxes at their default settings and change each of the following:
Update from primary location: Company web server
There is no need to modify any further settings. Close the preferences. Sophos should now be configured.
