About Symantec Client Security
Symantec Client Security provides scalable, cross-platform firewall,
intrusion detection, and antivirus protection for workstations and
antivirus protection for network servers. You can establish and
enforce antivirus and firewall security policies; retrieve content
updates, such virus definitions and intrusion detection signatures;
control live viruses; and analyze logged events.
Symantec Client Security provides a variety of management tools. You
can use a centralized management console, the Symantec System
Center, running on an administrator computer to manage security on
your network-connected computers and remotely deploy Symantec
Client Security software. Additional tools allow you to set up internal
distribution of content updates and automate responses to new or
unrecognized viruses.
Computers that are not connected to your network can also be
protected with Symantec Client Security. Content license files must be
distributed to each computer.

Symantec Client Security lets you install only the
components that you need to implement security at your
site. Although you can install and manage the Symantec
Client Security server and client programs without the
Symantec System Center, a centrally managed
implementation works best for most businesses.
The Symantec System Center is required if you want to
manage Symantec Client Security servers and clients
(including legacy antivirus clients) from a central console.
How to get started
The following management components are installed by
default when you install the Symantec System Center:
This card describes the main methods for installing
Symantec Client Security and provides the information
that you need to run the product. For a description of all of
the methods that you can use to install Symantec Client
Security, including Windows Installer (.msi) technology,
the Web Installer, third-party tools, and logon scripts, see
the Symantec Client Security Installation Guide.
If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Symantec
Client Security, see “Migrating to the current version of
Symantec Client Security” in the Symantec Client Security
Installation Guide.

Note: Installing Symantec Client Security firewall client
without Symantec Client Security antivirus client is not
supported.
Before you install
Before you begin any installation procedure, you need to
consider several factors.
Disabling the Windows XP firewall
Windows XP includes a firewall that can interfere with
Symantec Client Security firewall client protection
features. You must disable the Windows XP firewall before
installing Symantec Client Security firewall client.
Windows Installer (.msi) considerations
Symantec Client Security uses Windows Installer
technology for all client and server installations. You can
use the standard Microsoft Windows Installer options with
the Symantec Client Security settings to configure the
installation of Symantec Client Security-specific features.
To disable the Windows XP firewall
1 On the Windows XP taskbar, click Start > Settings >
Control Panel.
In addition to the standard installation methods, you can
deploy client or server installations using .msi-supported
third-party tools such Active Directory and Tivoli.
2
In the Control Panel window, double-click Network
Connections.
See the Symantec Client Security Installation Guide.
3
Server considerations
In the Network Connections window, right-click the
active connection, and then click Properties.
4
On the Advanced tab, in the Internet Connection
Firewall section, uncheck Protect my computer and
network by limiting or preventing access to this
computer from the Internet.
5
To close the settings window, click OK.
The following are server considerations:
■
■
■
When you are installing to NetWare, log on to all of
the NetWare servers before you start the installation.
To install to NetWare Directory Services (NDS) or
bindery, you need administrator or supervisor rights.
Installing Symantec Client Security
from the Symantec System Center
When you install to NDS, the computer that is
performing the installation must use the Novell Client
for NetWare. If you encounter problems installing to a
bindery server with the Microsoft Client for NetWare,
install the Novell Client for NetWare and try again.
You can install the Symantec System Center and use the
management console to deploy the installation of managed
servers and clients.
Symantec recommends that you run the Novell Client
for NetWare on the computer from which Symantec
Client Security server will be rolled out to NetWare
servers.
The installation of the Symantec System Center includes
installation of all of its management components by
default. You can deselect any component that you do not
want to install.
Client considerations
If you do not want to use the Symantec System Center,
continue with “Installing Symantec Client Security locally
from the CD” on page 9.
The Symantec Client Security client installation program

What’s new in this release
Symantec Client Security includes new and improved
features. The following table lists and describes what’s
new in this release.
Feature
Description
Windows Installer
(.msi) client and
server
installations
Lets you install Symantec Client
Security clients and servers using
Windows Installer technology to
support .msi-based installation and
deployment.
Deployment of
installations
without granting
administrator
rights on the
target computer
Lets you install Symantec Client
Security from the Microsoft
Management Console (MMC) using
Elevated Privileges, rather than
granting administrative privileges to
the user on the target computer.
POP3 and SMTP
Internet email
scanning
Lets you configure Symantec Client
Security clients to scan email body
text and attachments that are
transported using the POP3 or SMTP
protocols. The ports scanned for POP3
and SMTP traffic are configurable.
Auto-Protect
Replaces and scans faster than
Realtime File Protection. Auto-Protect
can be loaded on system startup, and
then unloaded on system shutdown to
help protect against viruses, such as
Fun Love.
Outbound email
heuristics
scanning
In-memory threat
scanning
Lets you scan running processes to
identify and handle threats that are
loaded into memory.
Lets you enable outbound email
heuristics scanning, which uses
Bloodhound Virus Detection to
identify potential threats contained in
outgoing messages. This feature helps
prevent the spread of threats such as
worms that use email clients to
replicate and distribute themselves
across a network.
Alert Assistant
Helps you understand firewall alerts
and potential security issues.
