I have a specific goal that I am trying to meet. I have two specific questions, but feel free to offer any other solutions to my problem.
Problem: I have a Linux (Slackware, but I can change distributions if needed)) firewall/router governing my Windows NT/2k client network. I need to provide virus protection for the Windows boxes without installing any additional apps on those machines. I must be able to scan the Windows machines for virus signatures and I would like to be able to scan incoming and outgoing network traffic with minmal detriment to bandwidth.
1. Is there an available application that will provide for my network's needs?
2. Is there a way to mount my Windows' partitions to my Linux box so that my Linux Anti-Virus can scan those files as part of the Linux file share?
