    Our organization uses, in various combinations, the following four
    antivirus products on their Windows (mostly XP) boxes: McAfee,
    BitDefender, AntiVir, ClamWin

    Quite a few of our boxes will NOT be connected to the internet but
    need to have their connected media scanned regularly nonetheless. I'm
    looking for information on how each product can be successfully
    configured to look to a local (non-internet connected) server to grab
    its updates. I am accepting that a manual 'sneaker-net' process will
    be needed to get the latest updates off of an internet-connected
    computer and onto the non-internet-connected server.

    Is such information typically available on the vendor sites, or is
    there an existing stack of information on this already compiled? I
    have not yet come across it if its already out there.

    Thank you!
