[clamav-users] We STILL cannot reliably get virus updates (since new mirrors)

Hmm, I went to recreate both cases before replying, and I can get both to work, sort of.
I still can't resolve DNS TXT records, but I can it seems throw the URI
http://db.us.clamav.net/daily.cvd to the proxy server and it can handle it.
Beats me what IP db.us.clamav.net resolves to.
I get the whole daily.cvd, with either wget or curl.

curl's -r 35-39 isn't honored though, when fetching externally.  I get the whole daily.cvd.

(I swear  this doesn't work at 6am Monday morning though. :) )

Thanks, Scott
