AutoUpdate fails when updating from FTP.NAI.COM

There were issues with DATs updating at the same time as engines too for netshield (ie It didnt update is they were both echeduled at same time) sure you can dig what you need out of the knowledgebase if this was more like the case.
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately it doesn't apply to us, as it works for some period of time (so NETDB is loaded properly). It's just some "random" period of time later, that it stops working (ie, no server reboot in between or anything).
Unfortunately McAfee uses Akamai so if we use a specific IP address it may magically stop working or that IP may not have gotten the updates in time.
Sorry can't be of much help no experience with netshield for novell..
Anyone else out there got any??
I had same problem. Problem is with PASSWORD.PWD located in SYS:\MCAFEE\NETSHLD directory. Ti fix it, follow next step:
shutdown netshld on your netware server
copy password.pwd from a working sever ( where dat files are being updated ) to your failing server
run your update.
