    Which AV/ firewall for server

    Hi all
    Reasonably experience user with 2 booms, radio and SB3. All music is FLAC on xp server.

    I use both iPeng and the free logitech controller on my iPhone. The problem is that neither of them are totally reliable or stable.

    iPeng seems to be constantly synchronising the cache but then gets stuck about half way.

    The logitech controller often just hangs with the spinner going but unresponsive otherwise.

    I have MSE and comodo on my server, when I deselect real time protection on MSE iPeng seems much happier. I have also removed comodo to see if this has any effect.

    What AV/firewall do others use reliable in my situation. The only time I connect to the internet on server pc is when I am ripping with DB

    Thank you
    2 Booms, 1 radio, a touch and an SB3...think that's enough?

    Shoot! I expected someone to reply as such, wonder what could be my issue then?

    in your MSE settings, under "excluded file types", be sure to add these file extensions:

    MY*
    MYI
    MYD

    I don't use any A/V or firewall on my home file/SBS server. A/V isn't a terrible idea, but I don't like the overhead. Instead, running a daily or weekly file scan seems sufficient.

    I do all of my rips on a PC, then send the finished files to the server.

    that should be fine. although odd, as I have all three as excluded extensions in my MSE
