    Default Zonealarm takes ages scanning

    I'm scanning an .ISO image over network on NAS server

    The image (compressed) is in .iso form. but its only 600MB

    Although i an scanning this image over network. allow the extra time over Cat6, but this is taking days.... Its already up to 4 days already and it has not completed.

    Should i just stop this scan, or just keep it going and see what happens..

    I'm running Zonealarm Extreme Security on PC

    Rather normal behaviour if you try to scan large files over the LAN it will take ages. Best to scan the ISO locally and unpacked.

    Thanks,

    Based on large *zip files these 600MB these easily take less than a day to scan... They take a few hours over network, but it's well within a day.

    Regardless of the type of compression, ZA is not really designed to scan over LAN. Results may vary but best to, if you need to scan large files, to do it locally and uncompressed.
