Al,

But the problem is that in 90% of the cases,

instead of getting the real main.cvd or daily.cvd,

I get a file with the following text:

<|DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<html><head>
<title>403 Forbidden</title>
</head><body>
<h1>Forbidden</h1>
<p>You don't have permission to access /daily.cvd
on this server.<br />
</p>
<hr>
<address>Apache/2.4.20 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.2g Server at <a href="mailto:webmaster at omroep.nl">database.clamav.net</a> Port 80</addresss>
</body></html>

Regards,

Zvi
