F-prot site license available for campus

by Frank Simmons

The Internet has many repositories of shareware software for downloading. Prudent users will examine the downloaded software for viruses prior to installing it. While the chance of infection is remote, especially from the larger repositories that have been in existence for several years, it takes very little time to conduct a scan of the file(s).

To this end, the University of Minnesota has arranged a site license for the F-Prot Professional anti-virus software. It is available for the following platforms:

Pricing is $8 per license (i.e., per machine). There will be an annual renewal cost for these licenses. The renewal fee will depend on how many licenses we distribute during the first year, but should be substantially lower than the initial buy-in cost (probably in the $3-$4 range).

If you wish to purchase licenses, please send a CUFS IV crediting Academic and Distributed Computing Services (802-3050-07) in the appropriate amount to:


Philip H. Kachelmyer
ADCS
University of Minnesota
148 Shepherd Labs
100 Union St. SE

Phil will send you via e-mail the information you need to complete the purchase and installation.

Additionally, IS has prepared a web page on the usage of the DOS version of F-PROT at the following URL: http://www.d.umn.edu/~fsimmons/fprot.html

If you have any questions, please contact Frank Simmons (fsimmons or x8859).
