[clamav-users] Mirrors access

Hi Dave,

I believe this setting only affects the number of attempts for a single mirror. For example, if I set this value to 1, it will try the first 3 mirrors of the configuration but only once for each.

BR,
Pierre

Try using a higher value for MaxAttempts in your freshclam.conf.
