Be advised that official support for SAV on the Mac OS 9 platform is discontinued. While SAV for Windows is listed as a supported application on the Computing Services List of Supported Hardware/Software (Policy 150.40), Only Windows 7 SP1 and newer are supported.
As such, when SAV is run on an unsupported platform it is treated as an unsupported application for the purposes of determining the level, priority, and associated costs of providing support.
The Sophos server appears to be updating without issues, but the clients are unable to receive the new updates from the server.
It is assumed that Sophos will continue to run on Windows systems prior to Windows 7 SP1 but this has not been tested.
For those systems that do not meet the licensing requirements we suggest using Microsoft Security Essentials.
Faculty, Staff, and Students can also download a free copy of Sophos Anti-virus software for home use by clicking on the Sophos Download link below.
NOTE: Mac Users Version 9 Releases (December 2017) You may find that you cannot yet download and use the latest version on certain 9x releases.
