HAVP not blocking EICAR test downloads

  • I haven't been running pfSense for long. I've installed Http AntiVirus Proxy. I wanted to test that it is working so I went to http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html and downloaded some EICAR test files, expecting them to be blocked. But they weren't blocked which makes me suspicious that the antivirus isn't working.

    On the antivirus General page both Http Antivirus Proxy and Antivirus Server say they're running.

    Update status is:

    Any ideas what's going on?

  • How are you running HAVP? Is it bound to the loopback or a phyical interface and are you redirecting traffice to it?
