Norton Corporate on Win 2000 Server-issue with client & Real VNC

    Hi
    Today I did some work on a WinXP Client on a Win2000 server network--the
    one and only client PC. While looking into what was installed on the
    Client, I was unable to find an anti virus application, either running
    or installed.

    I went to the server and found Norton 2001( I believe) Corporate Anti
    Virus installed and with up to date virus strings--according to the
    'update now' button

    My question is, does the Win2000 Server accomplish the anti virus job
    for the client in the Corporate scheme of things? It would seem like the
    client would need to have the application installed also---it does
    not, at least not according to the A/R Programs and the Start Menu.

    A second question is I also saw Real VNC installed and active in the
    System Tray. A single right click brought up a sheet that included an IP
    address and an ******** password. It appears that there is an outside
    person with access to this machine. The owner has not a clue.

    Can someone advise if I am correct? I cannot see any other reason for
    VNC to be up and with a password encoded.

    I Thank You for the time.

    Any Help would be appreciated.

    It depends on what the client does. If the client only works on files off of
    the server it will never get a virus unless the server has it first but if
    the client has internet and email access it is wide open to anything.

    We use Corporate NAV and I have to install it on the client then point
    it to the server to have the server manage the updates. I don't work on
    the servers but I understand there is some control from there for
    scanning of the client and such.

    .....seems like it should/must be installed on the client....should be
    shown in the list of installed applications i would think...but not there.

    The client is a Road Runner connection via direct link to the switch.
    The client does only use the files that are on the server..Quick Books
    mainly...but, with the internet access on an all day basis(adaware and
    spybot had a field day), it should have the package running on it too.
    the other place I have experience with using Norton on a network showed
    the client getting updates as the server does--on a schedule.
    I need to do some more detective work I guess.

    Tha VNC thing is also a mystery...and the user is no help.

    Thanks for the time.
