    For any server, I would strongly recommend NOT using free software, especially not for Anti-Virus. Although there are comparable free options out there, you can make a strong point for updating frequency, paired with support, which usually is relatively important for a server environment.

    Then again, that depends on the mission critical useage for the server itself..

    Thanks .. understand the consequences but than again this server is not critical and meant for testing only. Cheers. :)

    I would agree with Avg then. Freen and Simple with a small footprint.

    Does AVG AntiVirus work on a Server OS. Could've swore it doesnt. At not the free version.

    Sorry to bump this somewhat older thread. Id just thought Id mention/ask it.
