There is a default autoupdate task on the client, it could be this ?
You can remove it with a tick box in the virusscan policy - user interface policies - Disable default Autoupdate task schedule
Thanks for the reply! I have double checked that setting and it is turned off. I don't know how much of a difference this makes. But looking through our firewall logs it seems that every client keeps trying to download "Super DAT's" only.
Well, I have to say I finally figured out what the problem was. Incase somebody else in the future has this same problem, I've decided to come back here and post my results.
The problem did not have anything to do with Mcafee or our mcafee configuration. Everything was working correctly. The problem was a third party network monitoring software that we use from a managed services company. I'm guessing the software they installed was set up incorrectly as it was the cause of the consistant SDAT FTP download attempts. I found gigs worth of SDAT files on every client machine in our company.
I have since removed the software and cancled our service with this company and our bandwidth is finally in the clear again.
