Selecting an update source

Update source is a resource containing updates for databases and application modules of Kaspersky Internet Securityэто ресурс, содержащий обновления баз и модулей Kaspersky Internet Security. You can specify HTTP/FTP servers, local and network folders as update sources.

The main update sources are Kaspersky Lab update servers where database updates and application module updates for all Kaspersky Lab products are stored.

If you do not have access to Kaspersky Lab’s update servers (for example, the access to the Internet is restricted), you can call the Kaspersky Lab headquarters to request contact information of Kaspersky Lab partners who can provide you with updates on the removable drive.

When ordering updates on removable media, please specify whether you also require updates for the application modules.

By default, the list of update sources contains only Kaspersky Lab’s update servers. If several resources are selected as update sources, Kaspersky Internet Security tries to connect to them one after another, starting from the top of the list, and retrieves the updates from the first available source.

If you select a resource outside the LAN as an update source, you must have an Internet connection to update.

To choose an update source:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Update Center section, select the Update Settings component.
  3. Click the Settings button in the Update source section.
  4. In the window that opens, on the Source tab, open the selection window by clicking the Add link.
  5. In the Select update source window that opens, select the folder that contains the updates, or enter an address in the Source field to specify the server from which the updates should be downloaded.
