When you go to Virtualmin > E-mail Settings > Spam and Virus Scanning and clock on the
Virus scanning program options then a help window pops up with the following description:
The possible options for this field are : Standalone scanner (clamscan) This is typically the default, and will tell Virtualmin to use the ClamAV scanning program that does all of the work by itself. This is certain to work, but can be slower than the next option. Server scanner (clamdscan) This option can be selected if the clamd virus scanning server is running on your system. It is generally superior, as the ClamAV virus database is quite large, and the server only needs to load it into memory once. Remote server scanner (clamd-stream-client) This option can be selected if the clamd virus scanning server is running on a remote system, and has been configured to accept network connections from other hosts. It is useful for offloading the task of scanning to a different system from the one that accepts email. Other program This option lets you tell Virtualmin to use some completely different program, such as your own wrapper script for ClamAV.
However on UI you have the following options:
- Standalone scanner
- Local server scanner
- Remote server scanner
- Other program
As you see the options are different on UI and Help section, so I wonder are the "Local server scanner" and "Server scanner (clamdscan)" are the same things? If yes, then please get one - UI or Help section - corrected.
