Ok, so it's not working.
I've tryed it my own and it's reporting this:

#McAfee update failed: cannot find the update file, Connection timed out
at /usr/lib/MailScanner/mcafee-autoupdate line 99.

I've done it by hand and it works.
I got the address and called: 

#cd /opt/VScan
#ncftp -u anonymous
#password: roberto at
#cd /pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/
#get *.dat

And this way i got the file....

What my be the problem here?

So you can help me here goes my config:

RedHat 8.0 (stock - RHN_UPDATED)


   Product Release:     April 9, 2003

   - DAT Version:       4257
   - Engine Version:    4.2.40

The Vscan version is so that i did it by hand...

Thanks in advance,

The other thing you could do would be to delete one or two of the .dat 
files, and check that mcafee-autoupdate replaces them.
