    I recently bought a copy of McAfee Anti-virus v 5.15.

    The product has an automatic update function. When I try it, I get a message that the software is trying to connect to TERMSVRL.MCAFEE.COM. Then I get a time-out error on the same server.

    I tried pinging the server, the ping goes to [], but then it times out.

    I tried to install the soft on three different pc's, different providers, no luck.

    Any suggestions ?

    GO to their web site, they have probably changed the address for the updates or it was temporarily down. You can manually DL the updated dat files any time.
