Using my ClamAV service, it tries to ping clamd regularly to make sure it is
still running. It uses TCP/IP to with the default port to do this.
If you are running a firewall that blocks access to the clamd TCP port, have
disabled it's listening on, or have changed the port number, then
you can't use it with my service program.
