This section applies to F-PROT Antivirus for UNIX File Server and Mail Server versions only
Use these when starting the F-PROT Antivirus Daemon Scanner.
|-f, --foreground||Causes the Daemon Scanner to run in the foreground and never to fork off a new process. The default behaviour is to detach from the tty and run as a daemon.|
|-d, --defpath </path/to/deffile>||Instructs the Daemon Scanner to use the specified antivir.def instead of looking in the default locations.|
|-a, --address||Instructs the Daemon Scanner to listen for scanning requests on the specified address:port instead of the default (127.0.0.1:10200).|
|--logfile </path/to/logfile>||Instructs the Daemon Scanner to use the specified logfile instead of syslog.|
|-h, --help||Displays commandline usage and quits.|
|--scanlevel||Instructs the Daemon Scanner which scanlevel to use:
0 => Disable regular scanning (only heuristics).
1 => Skip suspicious data files. Not recommended if filename is unavailable.
2 => (Default) Unknown and/or wrong extensions will be emulated.
3 => Unknown binaries emulated.
4 => For scanning virus collections, no limits for emulation
|--archive=n [default=5]||Scan inside supported archives n levels deep, the supported range is between 1 and 99, the default level is 5.
Supported archives are .zip, .cab, .tar, .gz, .izh and .arj files. Currently F-PROT Antivirus does not support disinfection or removal of infected files within archives. Unix mailboxes are considered to be archives and therefore F-PROT Antivirus is not able to remove infected attachments.
|--heurlevel=n [default=2]||How aggressive heuristic should be used. Higher levels means more heuristic tests are done which increases both detection rates AND risk of false positives.
Supported range is 0 - 4, default is 2.
|--adware||Instructs the Daemon Scanner to flag adware.|
|--applications||Instructs the Daemon Scanner to flag potentially unwanted applications.|
|--disinfect||Disinfect whenever possible. F-PROT Antivirus does not support disinfection of infected objects located in archives.|
|--macros_safe||Remove all macros from infected documents.|
|--macros_new||Remove all macros from document when new variant is found.|
|--stripallmacros||Remove all macros from document.|
