Hi, I have installed HAVP proxy antivirus http. When I start the havp:

Clamd fails... I need the squid install?? or not necesary?
Thanks in advanced.
If you wait a little bit, I think it will download the latest virus database and start on its own.

Actually, this happens because the HAVP config expects to find the following files at /var/run/clamav:
The thing is, in pfSense those files are found in /var/run, which is why the package can't find them. Moreover, there seems to be no way to change the path in the config file (and I read somewhere this was hardcoded into the scanner). The current workaround for this is creating this directory and linking the files together.
mkdir /var/run/clamav ln -s /var/run/clamd.sock /var/run/clamav/clamd.sock && ln -s /var/run/clamd.pid /var/run/clamav/clamd.pid
The problem is that these files get lost on every reboot. I've tried modifying the service startup script to check for this automatically, but have had no luck so far.
Hope this helps
