    How can I test the Anti Virus filter in my Stonesoft FW-315 is working? As I can download the EICAR test virus in my browser and the firewall doesn't seem to stop it, so not sure it is working.

      How can I test the Anti Virus filter in my Stonesoft FW-315 is working? As I can download the EICAR test virus in my browser and the firewall doesn't seem to stop it, so not sure it is working.

       

      Procedure

      open browser on PC

      PC is on network connected to itnernet via Stonesoft 315 FW with Anti virus enabled

      goto URL http://www.eicar.org/download/eicar.com

      click it and download test file that trips AV software

      it downloads to my PC and AV software eg ESET or WIndows Defender alerts

       

      So it would appear the firewall is not detecting it and blocking it.
