    Update of dat-file in Linux environment




      I run the command-line scanner version of McAfee VirusScan in Linux (uvscan).


      In the past, I used the wget-command to update my patternfiles, as in the command-line version, I could not find a auto-update function. ( wget -r -l1 --quiet -A tar ftp://ftp.mcafee.com/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/ ) .

      But now, it seems not to work anymore. It seems, that the directory-listung is not shown. Only if I use wget -r -l1 --no-cache ftp://ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/avvdat-7311.tar the filt is downloaded as "in the past".

      The computer is connected directly to the internet, no proxyserver is used.



      How do others update their patternfiles in linux?

      Or is there an update-function, that I did not find?



      I would appreciate, if I get some hints
