Configuring Avast Business Antivirus Policies: Configuring General Settings

  • Last updated on

General Settings are available for both Workstations and Servers.

General Settings lets you control how you access and get notifications from Avast Business Antivirus, as well as how you update programs and virus definitions. You can also set your proxy, if you use one, enable or disable debug logging, and show or hide the Avast Business Antivirus icon in your toolbar tray.

Proxy Settings in Antivirus Policies and Onsite Manager

Proxy settings from Onsite Manager override settings from the Antivirus Policy. If both Onsite Manager and the Antivirus policy have configured proxy settings, devices will use the proxy settings from Onsite Manager.

Avast Antivirus does not support the digest authentication method. If Onsite Manager is configured to use a proxy with digest authentication method, the installation will try the proxy settings from the Antivirus policy. If the policy does not have proxy settings, the installation will not use a proxy.
