We use NAI VirusScan for Linux and FreeBSD on our MailScanner gateways.  The
command line stuff all came with "NAI Total Virus Defence (TVD) Enterprise
7.0".  OK so we have the "enterprise" version, but apparently any TVD
version includes the command-line scanners - AFAIK the only difference
between TVD packages is the number of licenses etc.

Maybe you need to mention the TVD package??
