I have upgraded from Immunet3 to Immunet5 and I have a problem with the proxy settings on Windows 2012.


I never managed with Immunet3 to detect my proxy settings but by adding the following two lines in the freshclam.conf I was able to use my proxy at least for the signature updates.


HTTPProxyPort <port>
HTTPProxyServer <proxy hostname>


My proxy settings are still not detected on Immunet5 but now I can't modify the freshclam.conf as it is replaced by the default one everytime the service is restarted.


Is there a way to change this behaviour or a new method to detect the proxy settings (I checked with netsh winhttp show proxy and the proxy is set) ?


In advance thank you,

Hi @Seb, did you solve the issue with freshclam.conf? I have the same problem because conf is locked by Immunet process and Im not able to set proxy for clamav updates neither for custom database URL(custom signature URL).

If immunet does not detect your proxy, you have to declare it with winhttp or import it from the internet explorer :

netsh winhttp>
netsh winhttp>set proxy proxy_server "<local>" (ex : set proxy

or import form internet explorer

netsh winhttp>import proxy source=ie


I hope this helps you :)

Hi all, I've  got Immunet to connect over a proxy by adding a system proxy via:

1) disabling IE enhanced security configuration:
2) In IE -> settings -> internet options -> connections->lan settings-> enable use a proxy server-> advanced -> enter your proxy ip's and ports.

3) From  an administrator command prompt, and add a windows system default proxy with:

show proxy
import proxy source=ie
show proxy

4)Immunet will now connect through your proxy and display your proxy info on the settings page after connecting.

Note though that as of v clamAV  can't perform  ClamAV definition updates from behid a proxy.
Also note that if Immunet can connect directly to the cloud without going through the proxy it will always prefer to connect directly.
