HAVP is in spanish



  • So I installed the HAVP thing, it works it's very cool few questions though:
    When I downloaded the eicar test virus, it found it, but: the message is in spanish, which is quite odd:
    HAVP - Acesso negado

    O acesso a esta pagina foi negado

    pois o seguinte virus foi detectado

    Clamd: Eicar-Test-Signature

    Your Company Here  Powered by HAVP

    Oh and one more thing, is there a way to make it just scan traffic on a subnet without telling the computer to use a proxy? It's kind of anoyying, cause I used untangle except that thing is a giant resource hog, eats up a p4 @ 2.0ghz with 1 gig of ram alive, and it scanned everything with no need for a proxy, is this possible?
    And it doesn't seem to scan SSL traffic, which kind of sucks :(

    And one more thing, I can't go to www.3dslice.net with havp on, it just says it's not available. That website is hosted on a VM on my server in linux, but if I just go to 192.168.1.203 it loads, but if I type it in my browser doesn't work. If I switch the proxy off in my computer, it works fine.



  • Not sure if I am reading you correctly.

    1. No idea about the language.  Check the config page and see if you can set to whatever you want.

    2. Yes, use havp in transparent mode, it will intercept any outgoing http and scan.

    3. How could havp scan ssl traffic?  It is encrypted, that is the whole point of ssl!



  • Thanks for telling me about transparent, works fine now. Oh and about SSL, I mean couldn't it maybe scan the file once it is in the network?  (Say you're downloading something, like the eicar test virus) Oh and I found out, there was an option for language, but it was so small, don't yell at me  ;)

    Also youtube videos take a good while longer to start playing, once they start they are fine, I just added youtube to the whitelist it's good now.
    EDIT: Oh wait it's still slow :/



  • You are misunderstanding something fundamental about SSL.  The encrypted link is between the client (say a web browser on a pc on the LAN) and the server on the WAN.  At no point is there any traffic that havp can see and scan - if there was it wouldn't be very secure SSL :)

    Makes sense, but there could be some super powers behind HAVP :P Ok maybe not :P
    Though, youtube is still slow with HAVP, and it's just youtube.
