    I am setting up a network using a server with Windows Small Business Server 2003. I will be setting up a VPN using a cable/broadband internet connection. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend the best antivirus to run on the server and do I need to install an antivirus on each machine or just on the server? Also looking for recommendations on a dsl router/firewall/vpn that is dependable and not outragously priced. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Thank you for your response. This is set up in a Retail Building Materials business. There are 2 point of sale terminals, a server and 4 work stations. Each of the work stations will be accessing the internet. The P.O.S. terminals will not be accessing the internet but are part of the network. Let me know if you want any more info. Thanks

    I've deployed Symantec anti - virus small business edition on more than 20 server / client systems, all have installed & run faultlessly for the last 3 years or so. the number of clients has varied from 4 to 120, a word of warning, read the book before you deploy !!
