HOW TO GET McAfee Antivirus Software

City College has a license agreement with Network Associates
( see: http://www.ccsf.edu/Info/Cmp/virus.html) for PC and Mac virus programs.

Under the terms of the license, instructors and students are allowed a copy for home use, as long as that copy is not given or sold to another party.

The DAT files are located in CCSF Anonymous FTP server: ftp://ftp.ccsf.edu/pub/Antivirus/.

Users with active accounts on either FOG or HILLS can download the programs by following these instructions:

For PC's:  Open your Mozilla Firefox or Safari browser (I..E. doesn't seem to work anymoreand enter in  the URL:

ftp://flast01@hills.ccsf.edu/../../usr/local/antivirus/8.5i/VSE850LML.zip

 REPLACE flast01 with the login you have received for hills. So if your login is jdoe01 you will type

ftp://jdoe01@hills.ccsf.edu/../../usr/local/antivirus/8.5i/VSE850LML.zip

You will have to enter your password and then you will download the program VSE850LML.zip which is compressed. Once uncompressed, run Setup.exe and make sure to choose the perpetual option when prompted to the choice of license. You will have the latest MacAfee anti-virus software installed. And it will update automatically with the latest DAT file on a weekly basis.

For the MAC, Open your browser and enter the URL

ftp://flast01@hills.ccsf.edu/../../usr/local/antivirus/4.5.1/VSC451Lens.zip

 REPLACE flast01 with the login you have received for hills.
