Thanks all for the replies... The reason I'm looking for something to run under a GUI is that I've set up a network at my folks house which includes a FreeBSD box running Samba. My Dad isn't comfortable with a command prompt yet, but he's interested in poking around to see what FreeBSD (and OpenBSD) can do (After so many times of having to go over there to fix windows, I couldn't help but spread some of my cheery Gospel. :) ).
I figured the best way to get him introduced was to set him up with KDE. So he's asked me about a virus scanner, and because there are three win machines on the LAN sharing the SMB resources, I figured it would be cool if the virus scanner was on the server. It's not for scanning email, and I understand what was said about it being for windows viruses (actually, that's the idea). I just figured that if the scanner was on a FreeBSD machine, then a virus wouldn't have a chance at screwing it up (I assume, while the backup Cd's are still smoldering). I've thought about setting it up to run in the background and relay an email to me if it finds something so that I can ssh my way in without having to make a house call. Then again, it wouldn't be encouraging him to get his hands dirty. I guess the best thing would be for me to get busy and improve my programing skills so I can get stuff like this to work. Who knows? Maybe it will be good enough for the ports tree. :) Thanks again. Mike PS... I've only skimmed through the man pages, but I seem to remember something about it not being able to remove a virus from within an archive (although it can scan within the archive)? I could be wrong, though (sounded pretty cheesy, but I was more intereseted in a mention of available frontends). I played with it for a little while but uninstalled it after exhausing my search.
